The institution of a specific curriculum within the Doctoral School of Archaeology wants to characterize a specialised research area where young scholars experiment all the instruments essential to the comprehension of ancient society related to modern.
Basic training requires comparing historical and documentary sources to archaeological data through a complete critical check. This involves objective analysis of results of archaeological and geological survey, excavations, monuments examination.
From both points of view, methodological and thematic, topography starts from single structure analysis ending with its placing in rural/urban context relating to actually present scientific problems (planning, restoration, opening archaeological areas and tracing didactic itineraries, etc.). In order to obtain this result, topography uses methods of detailed drawing, 3D modelling and rendering, advanced technology (total station, GPS, computerized mapping, GIS), all essential means to get to a full autonomous work.
