Course content

3D methods of digitally documenting objects, sites, and landscapes offer significant potential to archaeology and heritage management. Digital data can be a way of archiving heritage (the need for this has been graphically illustrated by the loss of world heritage sites to conflict) and it is becoming the gold standard for commercial recording of sites and landscapes.

Digital data can be used for a variety of purposes:

  • to monitor change for conservation and management
  • to investigate and analyse features
  • for reconstruction purposes
  • to visualise and present the past
  • providing new ways of engaging with the public
  • providing access to remote sites or inaccessible collections that are otherwise difficult to reach

This new Masters programme will give you direct hands-on experience of current technologies used for acquisition of data and the manipulation, presentation, and analysis of data captured at all scales.

You'll benefit from direct access to a wide variety of case studies and will have the potential opportunity to participate in a variety of international research projects. We work in the heart of Yorkshire, around the globe and under the sea – these landscapes underpin the MSc.
