Field Methods of Archaeology - AHIS394

This unit is an examination of the methods and techniques used by archaeologists in a field situation to identify, recover, analyse and interpret their data. The course consists of lectures coupled with direct experience in field techniques of archaeology (survey techniques including aerial survey, geophysics and field walking; excavation strategies and recording; sieving and sampling strategies, etc.) using a range of modern scientific techniques. The majority of the teaching will take place in the on-campus teaching infrastructure (simulated archaeological excavation site) where students will practice the new skills acquired during the course.
