Fieldwork 2

Module code: AR3044

This module follows up on the archaeological fieldwork projects attended by students at the end of year 2. Through a short series of practical workshops in conjunction with linked readings, you will work on a presentation and report on the results of the specific projects you attended. This will enable you to engage in the post excavation/survey process for projects you have worked on and interpret the discoveries made during your fieldwork, gaining a broader appreciation of the nature of archaeological fieldwork and its interpretation.
