Studies of African Field Archaeology

Kalinzu Forest walk

This course will provide students with practical experience of archaeology on the African continent, through an intensive two-week visit to East Africa, incorporating lectures, seminars, site visits and museum tours. This visit will not only focus on a selected range of archaeological resources designed to provide an overview of the archaeological record, but will also consider general issues of African landscape and ecology and also the role of the past in contemporary society. Students will not only, therefore, have an insight on the archaeological materials available, but also on the practice of archaeology in non-Western settings.

Duration of Course: Two weeks in February, including the whole of reading week. Please reserve 14 days fieldwork grant towards your maintenance and travel costs for this course. If you do not have sufficient days left, you will be expected to meet these costs yourself. Please contact Andrew Reid for further information.
