The course highlights issues such as the use of new technologies in mapping spaces to demonstrate all parameters (eg GIS) of recording and discovering findings (eg information systems, 3D photography), rescue, conservation and conservation sites, monuments and archaeological finds. Particularly in the field of management of archaeological sites and museums, the course focuses on the subject of "archeology of society" or "public archeology", in which it analyzes the newest ethical trends that highlight participatory and interaction with society, as well as the role of social networking as a key parameter for the successful operation of archaeological sites. Emphasis is placed on the need to socialize archeology and thus to develop more extrovert ways of transmitting archaeological information to non-specialized audiences, contributing to the management and exhibition of archaeological collections.
The primary objective of the course is to analyze special cases of archaeological sites and museums, which are representative of the practices of recognition and management that have been applied in the past and allow for the development of theories that shape the perceptions of the future.
Upon successful completion of the course the student will be able to:
- Perceive the stages of designing and managing archaeological sites in Greece
- Participate in the implementation of programs for the promotion and management of archaeological sites
- Raise issues of socialization of archaeological information
