Mar 14, 2016 Fieldwork Comments Off on Lincoln Archaeological Field School
Volunteers are invited to join the Lincoln Archaeological Field School 2016, run by Bishop Grosseteste University. This summer, the Field School is investigating the medieval and later landscape of Harpswell, located about 12 miles north of the historic city of Lincoln. Excavation will focus on the suspected site of a medieval manor, which also boasts exciting evidence for Roman and Anglo-Saxon activity and even a water filled moat!
The Field School takes place over a period of six weeks working Monday to Friday each week. The experience is primarily excavation-based but there will also be opportunities to participate in geophysical survey activity and lab-based processing of artefacts and environmental material. Tuition will be a mixture of on-site training in practical skills, supported by formal lectures and workshops, all delivered by experienced academic and professional archaeologists. If participants choose to attend the entire field school, academic credits are available: UK 20 (ECTS Credits 10 / US Credits 5).
Volunteers are welcomed for any period of one or more weeks between Monday 27th June through to Monday 22nd July 2016. All volunteers will receive basic tuition in excavation and recording methods. Cost for volunteers is £200 per week which will include basic on-site tuition but please note that accommodation and academic credits are not included.
