Spring 2019 – International Application of Archaeological Science

International Application of Archaeological Science

In response to the overwhelmingly positive feedback in March of 2018, the Department of Archaeology has decided to run the international training course for a second consecutive year. The course will be held at the department’s research and laboratory facilities in Jena, Germany. The event runs from the 20-31 of March, 2019. The course will cover a variety of methods, including quantitative lithics analyses, Geographical Information Systems approaches, ancient proteomics, ZooMS, stable isotope analysis, both micro and macroscopic methods in archaeobotany, morphological identifications in archaeozoology, human osteology, chronological methods and models, and statistical analysis. It is designed for junior researchers with extensive archaeological experience wishing to implement new methodologies within their home countries and expand the knowledge base within their institutions. Course instructions will be in English and flights, visas, travel by train or bus to/from Jena, accommodation, and course materials are provided for the selected participants. All software used will be open access, enabling attendees to apply learned skills without constraint. Course instructors will focus on methods that can feasibly be implemented outside well-funded laboratories and will seek to teach proper sampling methods.
