Description
In the first part of the course, we will be excavating The Necropolis, which focuses on funerary structures, specifically inhumations. Participants will learn and apply excavation techniques used in biological anthropology when excavating tombs. Students will also participate in lectures on skeletal anatomy and pathologies, classes, exercises and excursions related to the course material. In the laboratory participants will be instructed by an anthropologist and other archaeologists in the classification, study, and conservation of human remains and other related materials found. Time dedicated to this part of the program: 50%. In the second part students will practice their computer drawing skills, so that they can create an archaeological GIS platform from the applied recording system of the Ancient City of Sanisera. In this way, students will also learn how to use the ARGIS software. Time dedicated to this part of the program: 50%.
