Archaeological Fieldwork Project (ARC2003)

30 credits

This module will enable you to put into practice the knowledge you have gained in your first year (level 1 or equivalent). You will complete a 4 week placement in archaeology/museum work, allowing you to demonstrate and build on your practical competence in associated techniques, recording methods and interpretation issues. You will gain a further understanding of how methods previously studied are put into practice to meet the aims of your particular archaeological project.  You will take part in four workshops which will review your experience including evaluation of your placement, discussion of methodologies and archaeological recording methods which will be used in two assessed assignments. You will produce a portfolio of evidence and methods and a contextual report.
