MOSAIC : Introduction to R

24.06.2021 bis 25.06.2021

Virtuelles Treffen

Part of the MOSAICpattern Summer School in 09.2021. R is one of the most common scripting languages in data science and is the most widely used scripting language in the field of archaeology. We offer an introduction to R, which teaches you to implement reproducible research in practice and gives you a general overview of the software’s capabilities. Besides, it serves as a basis for the later Summer School.

  • 18.06. & 24.06. & 25.06.2021
  • Deadline for application: 14.06.2021


Please enrol for the three different courses separately by email: office@sfb.uni-kiel.de. We will then send you further information. Please note that all events are entirely digital. You will receive the link for the video conference in given time after registration.

Biweekly Colloquium: “The chalcolithic ›mega site‹ of Valencina de la Concepción (Seville): New investigations in the Northern Sector”

28.06.2021 von 16:15 bis 17:45

Virtuelles Treffen

Dr. Thomas Schuhmacher  •  Deutsches Archäologisches Institut (Abteilung Madrid)

The chalcolithic ›mega site‹ of Valencina de la Concepción (Seville): New investigations in the Northern Sector

The ›mega-site‹ of Valencina de la Concepción extends throughout the northeast limit of the Aljarafe Plateau, 6 km to the West of modern-day Seville in the South of Spain. It consists of a huge necropolis area with several monumental tombs and a settlement area which covers an area of about 200 hectares. In the margin of a project financed by the DFG the German Archaeological Institute investigates the Northern sector of this ›mega-site‹ by means of geophysical surveys, excavations and scientific studies. The geomagnetic survey of a surface of more than 19 ha. revealed a concentric system of at least five ditched enclosures and one smaller rectangular one, as well as a large amount of pits, semi-circular huts excavated in the ground, as well as possible hypogea. For the first time we have also been able to sequence the infill of almost all chalcolithic ditches by means of manual drillings. During the excavations carried out in the municipal plot of Cerro de la Cabeza a dense sequence of chalcolithic pits, semi-excavated huts and workshops have been documented and first stratigraphic cuts through some of the ditches have been undertaken. The chrono-typological definition of the ceramics, as well as a series of 14C dates obtained by AMS begin to reveal the sequence of the settlement. Beginning in the late Neolithic/Early Chalcolithic (end of the 4th millennium BC) it experiments its peak occupation during the Middle Chalcolithic (first half of the 3rd millennium BC). During its transition to the Late Chalcolithic (mid 3rd millennium BC) there seems to be a reduction in the size of the settlement, seeming to become even more reduced during the Bell-Baker phase. At about 2200 BC the excavation of ditches as well as the settlement itself suddenly ends. We also present some evidence that seems to indicate a short and not very intense re-occupation of the Cerro de la Cabeza area during the later Early Bronze Age (beginning of the 2nd millennium BC).

Bronze Age Round Table

07.07.2021 von 16:00 bis 18:00

Virtuelles Treffen

Der "Bronze Age Round Table" ist ein offener Gesprächskreis für alle Studenten und Doktoranden, die sich mit bronze- und früheisenzeitlichen Themen beschäftigen. Zu Beginn eines jeden Semesters haben Master- oder Bachelor-Studenten die Möglichkeit, ihre Themen vorzustellen und damit verbundene Fragen zu diskutieren. Jeder ist willkommen, Vorschläge zu machen oder ein Thema vorzustellen. Wie in der Zeit der Videokonferenzen muss die Tee- und Keksversorgung leider aus der eigenen Küche kommen.

Vorträge und Diskussion finden in deutscher oder englischer Sprache statt.

"Frühbronzezeit in Mecklenburg"
Hendrik Raese/Annalena Pfeiffer

"Study on Pottery, Chronology and Social Dynamic of the Hungarian Bronze Age"
Robert Staniuk

MOSAICpattern Summer School

20.09.2021 bis 24.09.2021

Virtuelles Treffen

Applied Point Pattern Analysis in Archaeology

During the September event, we will put theory into practise and apply the reproducible research approach to a specific case study using point pattern analysis. We aim to jointly publish the results in an open access journal afterwards!

  • Max. Participants (12)
  • Deadline for application: 13.09.2021

 

Details The increasing use of quantitative methods and computer-based analytical tools in scientific work is accompanied by a crisis of reproducibility. This is mainly due to the lack of basic knowledge of how to use computers, how to integrate data into them and how to transform them into an analysable form. In combination with proprietary software, this creates a world of science whose findings are no longer comprehensible by other colleagues, and corresponding findings are more like advertising promises than genuine knowledge generation. This is a paradox, since it is very easy to work transparently and comprehensively in the field of computer-based data analysis - at least if certain basic rules of scientific work are considered. New skills are best acquired through trial and error. Accordingly, in this series of events we focus very much on practice and teach participants the core competencies of transparent and reproducible work by means of a landscape archaeological point pattern analysis. Due to the current situation, the event will take place digitally. The individual blocks can also be attended individually, however, the September course requires R knowledge. Attendance at the R introduction is sufficient for this.

Please enrol by email: office@sfb.uni-kiel.de.

We will then send you further information. Please note that all events are entirely digital. You will receive the link for the video conference in given time after registration
