The module provides an overview of methods and approaches employed in modern archaeology as well as an introduction to study skills in higher education. The major part of the module deals with methods of field archaeology (archaeological prospection and excavation), relative and absolute dating methods, environmental evidence (plant and animal remains, biomolecular archaeology) and artefact analysis (stone and metal objects, pottery and small finds). Seminars provide further training in study skills, archaeological stratigraphy and site interpretation.
