Module overview

How do archaeologists find sites, gather data and proceed to make sense of archaeological traces? This module provides a detailed introduction to fieldwork methods and analysis, covering site prospection techniques (e.g., aerial photography and geophysical survey), the basics of environmental and maritime archaeology, the study of standing buildings, scientific dating techniques and excavation. The content is delivered through a combination of lectures and weekly practical sessions.
