ANTH 50.03 Digital Archaeology

This course will examine how digital technologies, particularly in the geospatial realm, are transforming the ways in which we discover, explore, and interpret the human past. Students will investigate archaeological questions while learning both the art and science of rapidly developing software, instruments, and techniques. The first unit of the course explores regional-scale archaeological problems and the use of aerial and satellite imaging, and GIS-based spatial analysis. We then turn to site-based investigations using archaeological geophysics, photogrammetry, and drones. The final weeks turn to 3D modeling, visualization, and immersive archaeological realties.



Degree Requirement Attributes


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
