Course description

Students must apply to the School for enrolment in this course.

This course is a residential field school teaching practical core archaeological skills (survey, excavation, artefact analysis, and faunal analysis) through participation in an authentic research setting. There will be lectures at the field site. Students will learn how field research is structured and implemented in archaeological research and cultural heritage management. Field locations will vary each year.

This course will have limited student enrolments. Preference is given to students who have completed ARCA1000 and ARCA/ARCS1001. Preference is also given to students enrolled in the extended archaeology major.

Contact the course coordinator (m.weisler@uq.edu.au) to express your interest in this course and to receive the application information.

Note: This course may not run, depending on provision of an appropriate field school site.
