Costas Papadopoulos

Constantinos Papadopoulos is at the last stage of his PhD candidature in Archaeology at the University of Southampton employing formal and informal analytical tools and computer graphics to critically evaluate the ways that modern methodological tools and especially three-dimensional visualisations can enhance archaeological interpretation. He has studied Archaeology and History of Art (BA – First Class) and Archaeological Computing (MSc – Distinction), and he is interested in the theory of visualisation, perception and interpretation in prehistoric archaeology, the processes of recording in archaeological fieldwork, as well as the importance of light in the understanding of ancient built spaces. He has received grants and scholarships for both his undergraduate and postgraduate studies and has published his work in peer-reviewed journals, edited volumes, conference proceedings and a monograph. He has also produced archaeological documentaries which have been presented in internationally acclaimed festivals. Constantinos has organised several workshops, roundtables and conferences and has delivered invited lectures both in the UK and abroad. He has teaching experience of both undergraduate and postgraduate students, and he is a member of the reviewing committee for The Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology Conference (CAA) since 2009. He has been elected as a publication officer at the board of CAA – Greek Chapter. He recently finished the co-editing and publication of the book Thinking beyond the Tool: Archaeological Computing and the Interpretive Process.
