This tutorial will explain the basic theoretical concepts underlying programming, and its potential uses for archaeological researchers. It will mainly be a practical course using the Python programming language. The dynamic of every session will be a mix of minimum theoretical background and different incremental examples covering the explained topics. In addition there will be several milestones where a small exercise will be performed in order to improve the understanding of the code. All the examples and exercises will be related to daily problems that an archaeologist can face (e.g. reading and writing text files, data processing, analysis and simulation, etc.). We remind all participants that they will need to bring their own laptops with the necessary software already installed.
The course is part of the transdisciplinary activities in the SimulPast project (CSD2010-00034), funded by the Spanish government.
