2018 Dig in Sanisera & Drawing Techniques

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

The research is focused on the archaeological excavation of Sanisera and it studies what happened in this Roman port connected to the maritime traffic that sailed the Mediterranean during those times. As a result, we know that this is a very interesting archaeological site, with abundant findings of multiple artifacts that will help us to reconstruct its past.

The excavation at the Roman city of Sanisera provides all the archaeological documentation necessary for the student to acquire enough training and experience in all aspects involving an excavation of the Roman civilization from the II century B.C. to the VI A.D.

In the second part the students will practice the techniques that are used in an archaeological laboratory so that they can register the main objects found on a site with the highest quality. The development of those techniques will help us to obtain drawings, photographs and digital archives that will be extremely useful for the elaboration of publications, reports or further studies.

Highlights

Learn how to excavate is the most important thing for a student who wants to become a professional archaeologist, however during the last years we have noticed that both the archaeological investigation projects and the archaeological management projects are becoming more demanding and strict with the information gathering that take place in an excavation.

It´s basic to catalogue all the material from the excavation efficiently and effectively by elaborating drawings, photographs and digital documentation that allow us to develop a rigorous research, for that reason the use of an appropriate image software has become essential for the elaboration of any report, study or publication.
