Submerged Prehistoric Landscapes Course 2016

Posted in Uncategorized by underwaterarchaeologyjobs on February 12, 2016

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Following the success of the University of Geneva Terra Submersa expedition in 2014, the summer school offers an intensive course on a new, multidisciplinary scientific field: Continental Shelf Prehistoric Research (CSPR).

The course aims at educating postgraduate students and young scientists to move across the boundaries of marine geosciences and archaeology, in order to shed light on the interaction between our ancestors with the dynamically changing environment.

Practically, the summer school will take place in Porto Cheli (Greece), and include field trips to the prehistoric site of Franchthi Cave and surrounding area. Its objective is to give the opportunity for young archaeologists and geoscientists to:

Become familiar with marine geophysical techniques (multibeam, side scan sonar, sub bottom 
profiler), marine geological methodologies as well as data acquisition, post-processing and interpretation.  Understand paleoclimate and sea-level changes and their interaction with isostatic and tectonic
vertical movements Link climate, sea level and environmental changes to the archaeology of people who 
lived on and migrated across the continental shelf.  Familiarize with key themes in coastal prehistory.

Deadline is 1 May 2016.
