Archaeological Fieldwalking

Participants wash the finds previously recovered during fieldwalkingThis weekend provides an opportunity to really get to grips with an absorbing aspect of archaeological fieldwork.

Field walking is an important but relatively simple method of surveying the countryside for archaeological remains. The course will include an introductory talk followed by a full day of field walking under the guidance of our expert tutors.

While field walking is an easy and enjoyable form of archaeology it is also an important part of many larger field work projects. The information recovered can be used to identify settlement patterns, occupational activities and landscape changes.

It is always a thrill to be the first person to touch an object that may have been discarded 2,000 or more years ago. So on Sunday we will take a closer look at the finds that you have recovered, with a pottery identification workshop.

The cost of this weekend break is from 235, inclusive of accommodation.
