Archaeological Practice - AHPG811

This unit is designed to facilitate archaeological fieldwork by PG students, especially those wishing to prepare for later research. It might take the form of excavation or an in-field archaeological project concerned with the processing, conservation and study of material from ancient societies or with the study of the environment in which ancient communities were situated. You are strongly advised to consult with the unit convenor (A/Prof. K. A.Sheedy) when selecting a project. You may put forward an archaeological project that suits your interests or you may select a project from the available projects directed by or involving the staff of the department. We currently work in Italy, Croatia, Greece, Bulgaria, Israel and Egypt. Available archaeological projects are mostly listed by PACE on their website under ‘pace opportunities’. Any project that you select must be approved by the university; there are various safety standards that need to be documented and explored. The university has already approved those projects registered with PACE. If you wish to select a project not yet registered with PACE and the university then please allow plenty of time for the various forms to be processed.
