SMALL STEPS IN UNDERSTANDING PREHISTORIC HABITATION AND BEHAVIOUR.
RECENT INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACHES
“Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iași, 20 October 2016, 9:00 AM
Building H, Room H1
The autumn school dedicated to interdisciplinary research in archaeology is organised in the framework the research project Non-destructive approaches to complex archaeological sites. An integrated applied research model for cultural heritage management carried out by a consortium formed by the Department of Interdisciplinary Research — Field Science from the “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iași, the Iași Institute of Archaeology of the Romanian Academy, and the private partner Arheomanagement SRL.
The event is meant to impart, especially to PhD students in the fields of Archaeology, Geography, Land Management, Heritage Management, the experience of the project members and of their guests from abroad on modern non-invasive investigation techniques, successfully employed in Romanian archaeology. Particular attention will be given to geophysical surveying, air photography, GIS tools, but also to soil, pollen and phytoliths analyses, employed in the investigation of human habitats during the Neolithic and Chalcolithic periods of Northeastern Romania.
Complex methodological interventions and eloquent case studies will serve to paint an image as encompassing as possible of an integrated model of applied research, efficient in tackling the issues faced by Romanian archaeology and associated fields of research.
The event will occasion oral presentations on the aforementioned topics, and debates on the issue of interdisciplinary research in archaeology.
