In June 2013, Bournemouth University will be running their final year of excavations. The site is a late Iron Age ‘banjo’ settlement containing round houses, work surfaces, storage pits and the footings of a Roman masonry building. The site is located in the beautiful county of Dorset, which has one of the best-preserved archaeological landscapes in Britain.
The field school will focus on the transition from the Late Iron Age to the early Roman period in Southern England, through a detailed programme of field survey, geophysical investigation and targeted excavation. Students will also receive training in environmental sampling, drawing plans and sections, and finds processing and recording.
No experience is required to attend the field school, which has been designed for students and volunteers. Two weeks minimum participation is recommended to be able to undertake some or all of the activities. Minimum age is 16.
