Duke and UNC recently held an Archaeology Open House led by CLST Professor Maurizio Forte

Monday, April 10, 2017

Archaeology deals with the study and interpretation of human activity through the excavation of sites and the analysis of material culture, the paleo-environment and cultural landscapes. In the last few decades, digital technologies, radiocarbon dating and the study of paleo-environments have revolutionized archaeology, which can be entirely considered a science. At Duke and UNC Universities there are several programs, classes and labs involving archaeology and the study of the past from multiple perspectives.

This first archaeology open house hosted the community of students of both universities. Both faculty and staff interacted in a public show to see what is going on in the field. There were display posters, demos, digital applications, 3D prints, virtual reality, drones and more about the coming summer programs at UNC and Duke.
