This online course will introduce students to three core areas of digital archaeology: 1) Spatial analysis using Geographical Information Systems (GIS), 2) 3D modelling, visualization and virtual reconstruction, and 3) Text mining and machine learning in archaeology. The course will cover the application of a variety of digital techniques from documentation in the field to processing, analysis, visualization and presentation of archaeological research data. The course will be delivered as a 5-week module of online lectures and tutorials, online practical exercises and supervision. All teaching will be delivered in English.


To study on a distance education will give you different opportunities than on-campus teaching. It means that, to a large extent, you will be able to plan your studies yourself, both in terms of time and place.

However, keep in mind that most distance education includes a number of compulsory digital lectures and digital seminars during the weekdays. Some distance education also include compulsory get-togethers, for which you will have to travel to Växjö or Kalmar.

There are a number of different ways to be a distance student, the common denominator being that a large part of your study work is carried out on the web. You communicate with the teacher and your fellow students using a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures or video meetings using a web cam.
