Training school: Studying Archaeological fieldwork, knowledge production, and the digital environment

Date: 
Sunday, November 5, 2017 - 08:00 to Friday, November 10, 2017 - 20:00

The training school aims to get participants acquainted with the goals, theories, concepts and methods of the study of archaeological practices, by examining state-of-the-art digital field methods and how these have changed archaeological knowledge production in science and heritage management. During the training school we will explore how archaeologists are conducting fieldwork and how they document their work and findings in different countries and contexts. We will further examine how this analysis of archaeological knowledge work can contribute to developing fieldwork practices and the use and usability of archaeological findings by different stakeholder groups.

Local Host: Digital Curation Unit/Athena Research Centre, Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports, Association of Greek Archaeologists
