Ready for more? We are pleased to announce the launch of EAMENA’s second multilingual Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) in Endangered Archaeology: Advanced Archaeological Remote Sensing: Site Prospection, Landscape Archaeology and Heritage Protection in the Middle East and North Africa.
Heritage is essential to our sense of identity and place in the world, but more than ever our heritage is under threat from conflict, tourism, natural disasters, and climate change. This puts archaeology at the heart of contemporary political and social debates. We work to sustain and protect cultural heritage for future generations. We do this through documentation, research, training, and consultancy, and by seeking to understand how people across the globe engage with, and respond to, their own heritage and that of others.
Supported by the British Council #CulturalProtectionFund via the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and hosted on FutureLearn, our second Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) entitled Advanced Archaeological Remote Sensing: Site Prospection, Landscape Archaeology and Heritage Protection in the Middle East and North Africa. Developed by researchers from EAMENA (Endangered Archaeology in the Middle East and North Africa), working in Durham, Oxford, and Leicester. The MOOC helps users gain a deeper understanding of how satellite imagery can be used to identify and protect archaeological sites and is a key resource for people throughout the MENA region interested in cultural heritage and archaeology who are keen to develop their skillset.
The MOOC is available in English, Arabic, and Farsi. Follow the links below to register & further develop your satellite remote sensing skills to protect cultural heritage with our FREE online courses!
