Understanding the Landscape of Roman Britain (ARC2400)

15 credits

This module will explore how archaeologists go about investigating the landscape using a wide range of sources and techniques. It covers both the methods used in reconstructing what Romano-British landscapes looked like, and explores the major components of those landscapes such as its complex hierarchy of settlement and patterns of land-use. Students are expected to already have a basic understanding of the principles and methods of archaeology for example through having taken ARC1020 ‘Essential Archaeological Methods’ and ARC1030 ‘Investigating British Archaeology’.
