Field

The field is where the core primary data of our discipline is produced: it is obtained by numerous methods, the most well known of which is the excavation of archaeological sites but fieldwork also encompasses topics such as landscape, topographic, and geophysical survey; which are in turn complimented by our sister disciplines of geology, ethnographic and social anthropological fieldwork. The implications and immediate consequences of fieldwork are studied by interdisciplinary co-operation with the Institute’s Centre for Applied Archaeology, regional and national museums, and taught courses such artefact and museum studies. The Institute is proud of both its strong fieldwork tradition and also its current fieldwork teaching and project portfolio; which encompasses sites across the globe; a field course set in one of the most dynamic archaeological landscapes in southern Britain, with sites ranging in age from Early Palaeolithic to late Medieval; and strong links with local London based research through the Thames Discovery Programme and the London Archaeological Archive and Research Centre.
