Five scholarships available to cover the registration fee for the Postgraduate Course RECORDING ROCK-ART, will be awarded by the AEM Foundation and will be given to the highest ranked candidates as evaluated by the Mountain University.
The course is tailored for those holding a bachelor’s or master’s degree in one of the following classes under Ministerial Decree 270/2004:
The advanced course “Recording rock-art: new technologies for the documentation and management of mountain and valley heritage” is proposed by the Moutain University (a center of excellence of the University of Milan located at Edolo) in collaboration with the Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici with the aim of developing new professionals for the field and transforming historical/cultural heritage into a valuable lever for regional development and economic growth.
The course is a postgraduate specialisation that confers an academic title. The programme aims to provide its participants with an “expanded” point of view both geographically and chronologically and to bring together complementary disciplines so as to create ideas and methodologies and enrich the field experience of future rock-art specialists. The lectures will include both theoretical and practical topography sessions on mapping using GPS systems, database creation and management, notions of archeology and mountain geomorphology, methodology and data collection on rock art.
The Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici (with experience gained in 50 years of activity) and UNIMONT propose this course of professional training and specialization in the field of human sciences and cultural heritage with the use of both theoretical and practical methods directly on the field.
The course opens the possibility of learning and applications to European students and graduates, offering lectures and contributions from Italian and international professors and professionals and providing the network of experts that the Center has been able to establish over the time with universities and research centers from all over Europe.
The course will last 30 hours over two working weeks (Mon-Fri 7 hours/day, Saturday 5 hours).
The practical and theoretical elements will be combined flexibly to allow for the possibility of bad weather and to permit putting into practice the ideas and methods learned during the lectures.
The course, due to its uniqueness of uniting theory and practice, will have to be carried out on the spot; the participants will attend part of the theoretical lectures at the Università della Montagna in Edolo (BS) and at the CCSP in Capo di Ponte (BS), the practical lessons will be held in the archaeological sites situated in Valcamonica (Rock Engravings Nature Reserve of Ceto, Cimbergo and Paspardo)
