Archaeometry (with Thesis) (Interdisciplinary)

Master's Degree - Instıtute Of Natural And Applıed Scıences

General Information

The archaeometry program is administered jointly by various departments of Faculties of Arts and Sciences, Engineering Faculties and Faculty of Fine Arts of Çukurova Universty. The program is designed such that the students with social sciences background can learn scientific methods of natural and applied sciences applicable to archaeometry while the students with science and engineering backgrounds can be educated in the methods of archaeology. Research facilities of the departments which are involved in archaeometry program are available. Current research in Archaeometry program in Çukurova Universty covers dating of inorganic materials, investigation of ancient and historical technology, geoarchaeological studies, and conservation and restoration studies of artifacts in situ and in museums

Length of Programme & Number of Credits

2 Year - 120 ECTS

Feature & Definition

Archaeometrical studies help to provide a universal chronology, origin of production and production technology of artifacts (information on where artifacts were made, how they were made and what they were used for). Archaeometrical studies also provide information on past landscapes, climates, flora and fauna as well as on man himself, information about the locations both of archaeological sites themselves and of buried features within these sites, information for full site evaluation prior to any planning application, information for decay processes and development of new methods of conservation.

Main purpose of the program is to qualify the graduates toward bringing solutions to the archaeological problems by the application of scientific methods of natural and applied sciences. The study and understanding of history have acquired a new dimension through the collaboration between pure scientists and archaeologists. Thus, the analysis, identification and dating of archaeological remains and materials have become complete.


Archaeometry, in general, aims dating of organic and inorganic materials, investigations of ancient and historical technology, provenance studies of artifacts, geoarchaeological studies, prospection studies, studies of biological materials, conservation studies of artifacts in situ and in museums and applications of mathematical and statistical methods to archaeological materials.
