The Digital Heritage and Landscape Archaeology programme from the University of Cyprus will act as an interface between New Technologies and the Humanities, exposing students to the latest spatial technological developments, providing hands-on training to different instrumentation and software, promoting a critical perspective of their application in terms of addressing archaeological- and historical- oriented questions and opening a dialogue between different disciplines.
The particular knowledge and skills will equip students to deal successfully with the existing challenging conditions of the competitive job market in the humanities and provide them with a solid base of knowledge to continue their research at an even more advanced level.
Key Learning Outcomes
Through the specific graduate programme, students will be able to:
- Comprehend the relation between environment, climate and anthropogenic activities of the past with emphasis on the settlement patterns and the exploitation of environmental resources.
- Obtain state-of-the-art skills that can be used in both field campaigns and laboratory analysis of surface survey and excavation results.
- Understand how the different spatial analysis tools operate to address questions related to the habitation patterns and the intra and inter spatial distribution of finds.
- Acquire the knowledge of creation of maps (distribution of finds, geophysical measurements, geological and topographic maps, environmental maps, etc.) and comprehend the different spatial statistic algorithms to analyze them.
- Familiarize themselves with the actual research questions and take a critical stand on the statistical and spatial statistical results.
- Obtain a practical hands-on training of software (GIS, network analysis, statistical analysis, mapping, etc.) and instrumentation/hardware (geophysical instruments, drones, cameras, GPS, etc.) that will make them competitive in their future profession (academia, cultural resources management, practical archaeology, etc.) and boost their career opportunities.
