Location: MSH Clermont-Ferrand, salle 220



9h00 – 10h30

Lecture talk (June 18th, 18h00 - 19h00)

Location: MSH Clermont-Ferrand, salle 220

by Boštjan Laharnar, Head of archaeological departmenet, National Museum of Slovenia

The Dolenjska group as an integral part of the southeastern Alpine Hallstatt culture: Overview and outline.

Boštjan Laharnar will present us the splendours of Slovenian Iron Age, widely known for its “art of situlae”. Located at the crossroads between the Mediterranean and the Continental Europe, the area of today Slovenia has seen the emergence of hierarchical societites which developped a peculiar lifestyle, borrowing from local and mediteranean traditions.

Workshop (June 19th, 9h00 - 12h30)

Location: University Clermont Auvergne, building Gergovia, salle informatique 319.

Topic: This practical workshop will allow participants to learn about GIS mobility modeling (calculation of the optimal path, surface-time, etc.), as well as visibility analysis (landscape impact of structures, intervisibility networks, etc.). We will discuss these approaches through practical case studies, based on archaeological data.

Prerequisites: Familiarity with GIS (data management, undestanding the principle of vector and raster layers). We will use the QGIS software.
