Course description

This course provides higher-level archaeology students with intensive laboratory-based research into topical areas of the discipline. It is taught in seminar mode involving group and problem based learning, literature analysis, peer interaction and intensive laboratory skill development. This course is designed to provide advanced training in archaeological laboratory techniques and methods, theory and research design. It is beneficial for those students continuing to honours as the course provides an opportunity to explore lab-based projects of interest and receive feedback on problem design and research strategies. Depending on current staff research, students can be exposed to practical lab work in palaeobotany, faunal analysis, lithic technology and use, and experimental and historical archaeology. Archaeological collections that may be available for use include the regions of Australia, the Pacific Islands, Europe, the Near East and elsewhere.
