The Lincoln Archaeological Field School is open to all UK or overseas students taking archaeology or related degree programmes and who want accredited field work experience. During 2012 the Field School will run from Monday 18 June to Friday 27 July.
The Field School takes place over a period of six weeks and is primarily excavation-based; there will also be opportunities for students to participate in an off-site geophysical survey and lab-based processing of artefacts and environmental material. Tuition will be a mix of formal lectures and workshops supported by on-site training in practical skills. Students are further supported with study materials delivered through our Virtual Learning Environment.
The Field School will take up to 14 external students during 2012; joined by the University's own undergraduate and postgraduate students. In addition a number of the University's Heritage and Education Studies students will be present to support and deliver a range of public, schools and community activities; a small number of volunteers will also participate.
