Description: The workshop is designed as an intensive 6-day laboratory and field school in all aspects of ground penetrating radar investigation, from theoretical principles to survey design, field preparation, data collection, in depth analysis, report writing, and podium presentation. Our participants, in 2-3 person teams, will learn the theory and methods involved in GPR exploration in various environments. Our participants will explore a very complex archaeological environment, conducting original research, in a multilayered, target rich environment, ranging in human occupation from pre-Roman to modern periods. They will learn how to manipulate, optimize and analyze in-depth the data collected using SenSoft’s EKKO Project GPR analytical software package, in order to generate professional reports as well as present the research and its results in a scientific manner, in a podium presentation.

Program Fee: US$1085 per session (it includes full room and board as described on the project web page, lectures, training, all field gear, access to analytical software, local transportation to the sites when needed; not included: travel to and from Romania, medical insurance)
