Course Content (Syllabus)
Modern archaeology is characterised by a strong interdisciplinarity in terms of the analytical techniques applied in the approach and interpretation of archaeological remains. A variety of methodological tools based on the sciences have been developed and are constantly evolving and enriched to contribute to archaeological research. From the broad spectrum covered by interdisciplinary approaches in archaeology, this course focuses on analytical techniques applied to the investigation of material remains revealed by the excavation process. In particular, the course provides an overview of interdisciplinary approaches to material remains and, through selected case studies, focuses on analytical interdisciplinary methods such as petrography, analysis of traces of use, various types of chemical analyses and the study of bioarchaeological remains, providing as complete an understanding as possible of aspects of the life of specific societies of the past.
