From Indiana Jones to kings under car parks and the Staffordshire hoard archaeology has the power to capture the public imagination. But this course lifts the lid on the real life adventures in archaeology that lie behind the headlines. We will look at how space-age technology and the latest scientific techniques are revealing extraordinary details of our long-dead ancestors’ lives. And we will also examine the tricks of the trade that archaeologists use to try to get inside the heads as well as the lives of ancient people.
The course will include a half day field trip as well as hands-on artefact handling sessions.
