Digital Archaeology Workshop: Opportunities in Digital Exploration of Medieval Shipwrecks

***DUE TO THE STATE OF EMERGENCY IN THE COUNTRY THE WORKSHOP IS POSTPONED***

You are kindly invited to participate in a two-day international workshop “Opportunities in digital exploration of medieval shipwrecks”, which will be held in Tallinn, Estonia on 22-23 April 2020.

The workshop will be based on a recent find – a medieval cog, unearthed from Tallinn and currently exhibited at Fat Margaret.

The aim of the workshop is to discuss, in a practical manner, the digital methods that have been used to research the cog and its artefacts but will also explore new technologies to use in the future. In the freshly renovated Fat Margaret building complex, many historical topics are brought to the visitors by the means of various digital aids. For conclusion, are the digital methods used for public outreach profoundly different from those that are used for research purposes?

The event is organized by the Estonian Maritime Museum and will be held at the National Library of Estonia, and the two venues of the museum: Seaplane Harbour and Fat Margaret.

Fee: 40 euros (students: 20 euros)
