Summer School "Preventive Archaeology" (Ravenna-Senigallia, 23rd june-4th july 2014)


Erasmus IP Summer School "'Preventive Archaeology'. Evaluating sites and landscape" (Ravenna-Senigallia, 23rd June-4th July 2014)*

*About the programme*
The Summer School “'Preventive Archaeology'. Evaluating sites and
landscapes” is an intensive programme aimed to introduce students to the
topic of the archaeological impact assessment (in Europe largely known as
'preventive archaeology' or 'preventative archaeology'), focusing in
particular on the methods and techniques for evaluating nature and
potential of archaeological deposits prior to transformations or
development, within a correct planning process. Integrating theory and
practice, the course gives large space to the new technologies of
non-destructive investigation increasingly often employed for field
evaluation, which can positively support the value-led process in
archaeology in the direction of a preventative and total project design.

*Learning outcomes*
The main learning outcomes regard a new transversal competence in matter of
'preventive archaeology', which is increasingly required in the modern
archaeological research as well as in the job market.
The Summer School will provide to the students an unusual full immersion on
a very topical issue, through quality lectures and practical experiences on
the field and laboratories, concerning human and scientific training.
Moreover, the course will institute a new process by providing a
stimulating environment for sharing and discussing diverse experiences from
different European countries in the addressed topics, in which students
will be a central and active part. This process will define new areas of
knowledge together with tools for delivering it also beyond the course

*Location and activities*
The school takes place in Ravenna, for the theoretical lectures, and in the
Marche region (at Senigallia and its hinterland) for the practice, which
involves field activities on both urban and country contexts (in
particular, with practical and lab sessions dedicated to aerial
photography, remote sensing, geophysics, instrumental topography, UAV

The course is organized by the University of Bologna (Italy), Department of
History and Culture, in collaboration with:
- University of Bern, Institute of Archaeological Sciences,
- University of Birmingham, College of Arts and Law & Visual and Spatial
Technology Center (VISTA)
- University of Bradford, Department of Archaeological Sciences,

The universities and the scientific partners involved have a great
experience of different level in matter of archaeological evaluation,
acquired working on various countries and territories which entail
diverse problems
(in terms of methods, techniques, environment and legislative rules). This
provides a fruitful environment for positive and stimulating exchanges
among teachers and students from the several institutions.

The school is open to a maximum of 30 students from the Universities

*Accommodation and covering costs*
The school is free for students from the Universities Partners.
For students total costs coverage for travel and accommodation (in B&B mini
apartments) is guaranteed.
Except for breakfast, the cost for food is excluded by covering, but the
B&B residences are provided of equipped kitchen area. In addition,
