The first SCAPE training event will take place on 6-7 December in Guimarães, Portugal. The event is being held at the Archaeological Museum of the Martins Sarmento Society (Museu Arqueológico Martins Sarmento) in collaboration with the European Capital of Culture 2012. The Martins Sarmento Society (Sociedade Martins Sarmento in Portuguese) is one of the country’s oldest institutions dedicated to the study and preservation of archaeological artifacts. The museum holds important collections on the pre-Roman Castreja culture as well as other archaeological items, sections on ancient sculpture, Latin inscriptions, pre- and proto-historic pieces and coins.
One of the biggest initial challenges to digital preservation is file format identification. While there has been a lot of work in this area, the ever changing nature of digital formats realistically means the problem will never be "solved". This first SCAPE training course will give you the knowledge and experience to confidently choose file formation identification and characterisation tools, which have been developed or extended during the SCAPE project.
As well as introducing you to a range of tools and their capabilities, you will learn about integrating tools into your own scalable systems and workflows, drawing on the expertise of the SCAPE trainers.
