GIS for environmental archaeology and archaeology, 7.5 Credits

About the course

Environmental archaeology data have geographical, chronological and human dimensions which are a prerequisite for our knowledge of past human activities, landscapes and environments. The analysis of these dimensions requires an understanding of the manipulation and evaluation of these data and their relationships. This course will allow you to learn aspects of the management of geographical databases along with a number of analysis and visualisation techniques. The Environmental Archaeology Lab’s own research and the Strategic Environmental Archaeology Database SEAD will provide material for case studies along with other digital map services and geodatabases.
