QGIS course - QGIS for archaeology

Events: 
Groups: 

Led by Simon Miles, this one-day course will provide a more advanced overview to the uses of QGIS (a free and open source GIS application) for archaeological purposes. It will build upon the previous Introduction to GIS and QGIS workshops, but attending that course is not a prerequisite of attending this one.

Using actual site data, combined with a series of Open-Data sources we will explore how to use QGIS. We will look at pre excavation tasks such as geophysics, field walking and site grids, as well as post excavation find plotting, digitising of trenches and georeferencing.

Monument condition assessment training course

Events: 
Groups: 

This new two-day course is led by Tom Dommett, regional archaeologist for the National Trust, who is responsible for ensuring that archaeological sites on National Trust land are monitored continually to help inform conservation work, identify problems early, and ensure sites are preserved for future generations to enjoy. Once trained, volunteers will hopefully continue to visit and monitor sites throughout the year, which range from Prehistoric hillforts to Second World War pillboxes and everything in between, taking photographs
