Project Description

The project is aimed at the study, analysis, interpretation and reconstruction of the archaeological landscape and environment with a digital multidisciplinary approach able to integrate environmental and spatial sciences, computing, history and archaeology. In fact landscape studies involve all the relations between humans and environment through the analysis of different societies, ecological, cognitive, environmental and cultural models. The Duke and international teams of students and professors will work together fully immersed in a very comprehensive digital and cultural workflow for landscape documentation, interpretation and communication. Research and training activities will be based on the following case studies: the landscape of Pontignano (Siena) and the Etruscan and Roman city of Vulci (Italy). Finally, some of the digital models processed during the summer school will be implemented in the DiVE at Duke.
