The course will introduce students to both the academic and practical aspects of traditional methods of drawing archaeological finds. The academic aspects will concentrate on:

  • types of technique
  • style
  • materials and equipment used
  • the layout and presentation of drawings for publication
  • scales
  • the requirements for publication reductions

The practical work will involve the preparation of drawings to the "camera ready" stage (i.e. presented to publication standard). The practical sessions will concentrate on the drawing of flintwork, pottery, metalwork, stone and bone artefacts, digital drawing including Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and computer aided design.
