The Kent Archaeological Field School (KAFS) will be running several hands-on courses that do not require participation in fieldwork. Courses are open to those who wish to further their knowledge of archaeological practices.
Courses include ‘Bones and Burials’ led by expert Dr Chris Deter, which will cover the onsite recording of human remains and how they can reveal information about an individual’s age, sex, and state of health. Excavated skeletons will be available for study and analysis in practical sessions.
Participants can also sign up to courses in archaeological drawing, surveying, landscape archaeology, and how to identify and make Prehistoric stone tools. The latter course includes a practical exercise on field walking for lithics and flint tools.
KAFS members will enjoy discounts on full prices (except field trips). To book, you need to fill in an online form which can be found on the KAFS website. The website also contains further details of courses and membership.
