About

The Summer School “Data-Driven Archaeology” will enable participants to manage the life cycle of digital archaeological data. It is built around a new paradigm, which takes into consideration archaeologists as both producers and users of digital archaeological data. Attendees will learn the concepts and methods of data retrieval, management, analysis and communication through an integrated use of software, statistical and practical principles. This will be accomplished through field activities connected to pottery analysis within the ArchAIDE project, and ICT-related activities carried out in laboratory and taught in the lectures. The Summer School will take place from June 25th to July 13th 2018, at the University of Pisa, Italy.
