Archaeology Field School Description


This workshop will instruct students on the use of the latest techniques in Computational Photography to document the archaeological site of Stobi in the Republic of Macedonia. A wide range of cultural materials at various scales - buildings measuring tens of metres to coins measuring tens of millimetres - will be documented and analysed using RTI and Photogrammetry. Two courses are available: standard & extended. The standard course is suitable for those with interest in advanced techniques for documentation of monuments & artifacts & archaeological excavation; digital photography; Roman and Late Antique architecture and art. The extended course is suitable for those who want to expand their skills in Reflectance Transformation Imaging, Photogrammetry and Total Station Surveying, as well as to travel even more in Republic of Macedonia and Greece. The courses will take place at the Archaeological site of Stobi, Republic of Macedonia. The Hellenistic, Roman and Late Roman city was a significant urban center in Antiquity and capital of the Roman province Macedonia Secunda in the Late Antiquity.

During the Workshop participants could join an optional excursion to ancient Macedonian capitals Aigai (Vergina, UNESCO World Heritage Site) and Pella, Greece. After the field school the participants could join also the optional 5-day trip to Athens, Thessaloniki and Delphi, Greece. All participants receive the BHFS Certificate of Attendance.
