In March 2018 the Department of Archaeology at the Max Planck Institute of Geoanthropology(MPI-GEA) (formerly Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History) hosted its first intensive one-week workshop on the International Application of Archaeological Science (IAAS). The workshop was specifically designed for students and other early career researchers from around the world.
In place of an intensive in-person 2021 workshop, the MPI-GEA is launching virtual resources that are accessible to not only early career researchers, but anyone with an interest in humanity’s past. This includes a series of online training videos and tutorials highlighting archaeological science approaches that address a wide range of research questions and will be freely available for viewing. We hope that these videos will assist in promoting knowledge dissemination and removing limitations on accessing new methods in the archaeological sciences.
