Digital technology and the growth of “big data” are transforming not only the ways in which archaeologists present and communicate their research, but also increasingly the ways they collect and analyze data. This course uses underlying concepts from the emerging field of data science and helps students develop hands-on skills in various critical techniques in archaeological data analysis and modelling, focusing on case studies from the Near East.
