Submerged Prehistoric Landscapes

22.08.2022 – 26.08.2022

Following the success of the University of Geneva Terra Submersa expedition in 2014, the summer school offers an intensive course on a new, multidisciplinary scientific field: Continental Shelf Prehistoric Research (CSPR).
The course aims at educating postgraduate students and young scientists to move across the boundaries of marine geosciences and archaeology, in order to shed light on the interaction between our ancestors with the dynamically changing environment.Practically, the summer school will take place in Porto Cheli (Greece), and include field trips to the prehistoric site of Franchthi Cave and surrounding area. Its objective is to give the opportunity for young archaeologists and geoscientists to:
Learn about marine geophysical (multibeam, side scan sonar, sub bottom profiler), marine geological methodologies as well as data acquisition, post-processing and interpretation
Understand paleoclimate and sea-level changes and their interaction with isostatic and tectonic vertical movements
Link climate, sea level and environmental changes to the archaeology of people who lived on and migrated across the continental shelf
Familiarize with key themes in coastal prehistory
