Recovering the Past to Recover Ourselves with Archaeology

This 1-day archaeology ‘taster’ course offers an opportunity to learn about the practical skills and thought processes involved in recovering the past using archaeological methods. By engaging with the past on a real archaeological site, students will be encouraged to consider the lives of those living in the past, the challenges that they faced and the ways in which they were overcome. By the end of this 1-day course students will have gained a familiarity with one of the most important prehistoric, Roman and early medieval archaeological sites identified in recent years. Students will have learned new skills in archaeology, been introduced to themes in our shared past, and asked to consider their relevance to our lives today. For those that enjoy this course, there will be a 5-day follow-on archaeology course on the same site in the week beginning 3rd September.
