Learning Outcome:This module will enable students to apply the skills and knowledge they have acquired from the courses of the Heritage Conservation and Site Management programme into the context of a specific archaeological site.
Students will be able to carry out in-depth analysis on a chosen topic in relation to an archaeological site. The interdisciplinary approach will allow them to examine the site not in an isolated context, but in relation to a wide range of stakeholders. Students will learn how to identify threats and opportunities, as well as how to plan and prioritize project tasks. The study project will enable students to develop, through individual and team work, innovative concepts and strategies for the protection and promotion of archaeological sites.
Students will develop skills and competencies that are required in heritage projects: scientific research and analysis skills, communication skills, problem-solving skills, competencies for concept development and project management.
Contents:The study project will have an interdisciplinary approach and will focus on a wide range of topics in the three main study areas of the curriculum: Site and Conservation; Site Management; Visitor Management and Information. The project must be completed within one semester, during which the students are expected to acquire and enhance the knowledge of the subject by means of intensive research both in class and in the course of independent work (group and individual). By the end of the semester, students are expected to develop their own approaches and ideas for particular topics related to the project. Elaborated strategies, guidelines and ideas have to be presented in a final report.
