Prerequisites
General Prerequisites
Basic knowledge on Prehistoric Archaeology is required
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will have familiarised themselves a) with different approaches as regards the presentation of cultural remains of the prehistoric period and b) various practices in managing prehistoric finds under rescue/systematic excavations. These goals are achieved through a) visits to prehistoric exhibitions in museums and discussions with museum curators and b) visits to on-going archaeological excavations of prehistoric sites. Students acquire a broad vision as regards the management of cultural heritage. They are trained in various aspects of educational programs organised by archaeological museums of Greece, at the same time developing a critical insight as regards various educational approaches adopted, the themes selected, the goals and outcome of these educational projects. Students have the opportunity to attend educational projects, always in collaboration with the archaeologists/museologists of the Ministry of Culture, responsible for undertaking these projects. In addition, students, through interviews/questionaires addressed to the wider public, acquire precious experience as regards the perception of prehistoric archaeology by non-specialised groups of people. Finally, the successful completion of the course, provides students with valuable skills that enable them, as future school teachers, to organise and undertake successfully visits to museums and archaeological sites, preparing their highschool students for an empirical acquisition of knowledge (through interaction with objects/spaces/people etc), complementary to teaching in the classroom.
