Field Archaeology

Fieldwork is a key research tool in archaeology and develops many skills that have extensive professional applications. Through your UCL-supported fieldwork you will gain knowledge of methods and the techniques to apply in many situations. The emphasis of this module is on gaining or developing competence in a broad range of techniques involved in fieldwork practice - surface exploration and excavation, environmental sampling techniques, recording, post excavation processing, museum work, archival work, study trips and outreach participation. This course requires the completion of a Fieldwork Notebook(s) - a daily log of the field activities that you undertake as part of this course.
