The Sanisera Archaeology Institute for International Field Schools offers an annual archaeology dig on the island of Menorca, off the coast of Spain. This course is for students who come from all over the world to study abroad and who are interested in archaeology, anthropology and mapping tools applied to Archaeology, as well as for participants who want to learn about topography, photogrammetry and archaeological recording system with a GIS (Geographic Information System).
This course is designed for students that have participated in an archaeological excavation and would like to learn about archaeological tools used to document research information collected with rigor and quality.
Many students studying archaeology, anthropology and classics have participated as part of a research team. However, not many have experience in using a total station for creating plans or GIS for processing the large volume of information generated during an excavation.
If you would like to enhance your studies and experiences in archaeology as well as be more competitive and efficient within your field, then with this course you will learn skills that will set you apart. Currently, using GIS to process collected data shows importance towards any type of research project, be it an archaeological survey or excavation.
This program is advanced and specialized, focusing on extracting the maximum performance from software and technology available to archaeologist.
We recommend that if you have no excavation experience, that you first participate in one of the following Sanisera Field School courses: 006, 008, or 010. This will allow you to better assimilate the essential information that you will be recording and processing with the software.
This course takes place on a Mediterranean island, among a pristine and unique landscape, surrounded by the sea.
