Understanding the Landscape of Roman Britain (ARC3400)

15 credits

This module will explore how archaeologists go about exploring the landscape using a wide range of sources and techniques. It covers both the techniques 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 ARC1000A ‘Interpreting Sites and Landscapes’.
