Archaeology and Classics Discipline+ Catalyst
- Introduction to Chronology and Radiocarbon Dating 31 October 2022
An introduction/refresher to the main methods used in chronological reconstruction for archaeology and allied research.
- Core GIS skills for archaeological research: essential map making and introduction to analysis tools 23 - 24 May 2022
This training event will run over two days. Participants will be set advanced preparatory tasks of downloading the open source software QGIS, and preparing a dataset.
The aim of this in-person specialist training day is to explore the practice and theory of working with fragments, their pitfalls and possibilities. Two expert speakers (Dr Tom Biggs, St Andrews; Dr Anja Slawisch, Edinburgh) will introduce their current research in literature and material culture, as a launch-point for student reflection and discussion.
- Decolonising Archaeology and Classics: Methods and Approaches (June 2022 as part of the SGSAH Summer School)
Decolonising research is a central conversation that affects current practice in archaeology, classics, related disciplines and industries. This session will be led by invited speakers who will present their research and lead into a wider discussion of how PhD students challenge racist and colonialist legacies and develop more ethical approaches in their own research.
- Bayesian Chronological Modelling Workshop 20-21 April 2022
When published, all event details and registration links will be found on the SGSAH Events and Training page.
