June 2019

The training that took place in June 2019 part of the Training in Action project focussed on advance techniques of data processing in GIS for the monitoring and protection of cultural heritage. The project is a partnership between the Institut National du Patrimoine de Tunisie (INP) and Durham University, in collaboration with the Department of Antiquities of Libya and other UK universities, University College London and King’s College London.

Week 1, 18-22 June took place in Mahres, Tunisia, and focussed on advance techniques of data processing in GIS for the monitoring and protection of cultural heritage.

Week 2, 24-28 June took place in Mahres, Tunisia, and focussed on two themes which build on the previous training: 1) damage related to building materials (i.e. stone weathering and conflict damage), its impact on the whole architectural structure and methods for structural stabilization, and 2) co-producing a statement of significance in collaboration with the local community and various stakeholder of the area/site.
