This course will focus on the computing and information technology skills used in professional and academic areas of archaeology. The programme will provide a broad foundation in a range of computing applications used in modern archaeology. Students will be introduced to Internet applications, database design, GIS, CAD, remote sensing and computer modelling methods, and to their practical application in the workplace. This training will support those students who wish to develop professional skills relevant to employment in the commercial archaeology and cultural heritage sectors. It will also support students who wish to progress to a research degree in these areas or acquire I.T. expertise that is transferrable to other employment sectors. Students will gain an understanding of the principles and practical application of a wide range of spatial technologies (including remote sensing, archaeological geophysics, GPS survey methods, AutoCad software and digital image processing). They will gain practical experience of how to create spatial databases for archaeology and to undertake spatial analysis using the aforementioned technologies. They will also be introduced to the acquisition and processing of spatial data from a range of remote-sensing and survey methods. The course will also examine digital methods for the publication and dissemination of archaeological information on the Internet.
