Workshops October 2021

Applications are now closed!

Two specialized workshops were held in mid-October 2021 aiming to provide an overview of the newest developments in the fields of Remote Sensing, 3D Modeling and Archaeometry to archaeologists, conservators, researchers and other employees in Cultural Heritage.

Geospatial Applications, Remote Sensing and 3D Modelling in Cultural Heritage: This seminar served as a practical introduction in the application of Remote Sensing, Modeling and Photogrammetry in Cultural Heritage. Specific case-studies of applications in Greek sites were discussed to highlight the potential for documenting and interpreting historical landscapes, monuments and artefacts. Hands-on experience on the use of commonly applied techniques was provided (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles – UAV), GPS, 3D laser, portable 3D scanner for small artefacts), as well as basic training in the evaluation of data via specialised software (GIS, photogrammetry, 3D modelling).

Analytical Techniques in Cultural Heritage: This seminar provided a short guide through some of the most common analytical techniques applied in Archaeology and Cultural Heritage (Petrography, Electron Microscopy, XRF, Raman). Emphasis was given on the range of practical applications and the potential of each technique for the study of different types of archaeomaterials. Hands-on experience was provided on the application of most significant techniques.

Both workshops took place in the facilities of the LA@UOP, in the campus of the University of the Peloponnese, in Kalamata. 

Attendance to the workshops and coffee/lunch breaks was free of charge. Additionally, all participants were provided with a Certificate of Attendance. Transport to and from Kalamata and the accommodation costs were not provided.

Applications from employees from Archaeological and CH institutions in the Peloponnese were prioritized.
