Archaeological Practice 1

Course content

The course gives an introduction to essential archaeological methods, which includes practical (excavation, stratigraphy, survey) as well as more theoretical (typology, dating, analysis) aspects.

A short introduction to archaeological theory and research history is also included. The course is the necessary preparation for the field school of Near Eastern archaeology (participation in the field-school requires a passed exam in this course).

The course will be mostly taught together with SAXO.
