The Sussex School of Archaeology is a new and exciting venture providing archaeology courses to the general public, as well as more specialised training courses for amateur and professional archaeologists. They will run a series of day schools, evening classes and trips, together with practical training courses to suit the interested armchair archaeologist as well as the keen amateur or professional looking to enhance their existing knowledge and skills. The course tutors are all specialists, most of whom recently taught at the University of Sussex and are very experienced in their fields, thus providing excellent archaeological training.
There is a huge range of archaeological programmes to get involved with, including survey courses at Shoreham Fort, and a three day course looking at the conservation of the internationally famous mosaics at FishbourneRomanPalace. Other courses include flintknapping, archaeological illustration, local ironworking, and many practical courses in field archaeology. Participants must be at least 16 years old. No previous experience is required.
