Introduction to Community Based Archaeology 2017

working2Are you fascinated by archaeology programmes on T.V., were you addicted to Time Team?

South Leeds Archaeology offered a course providing a basic introduction to Community Based Archaeology at Oakwell Hall in July 2016. The overall feedback from the course was excellent.

This year (2017) we are planning to offer a similar course at the Rothwell Community Hub.

Based on last year’s feedback we will be running the course over five 2-hr evening sessions.  The aim of the course is to explain how an archaeological investigation is researched, planned, carried out on-site and finally recorded and published. Common terms and techniques will be introduced and covered.  A lot of archaeology can be done without having to be physically active, even from the comfort of your own home!

No previous knowledge or experience is necessary and we hope that following these sessions you might be persuaded to join SLA and take part in future projects which we are planning.

Further details describing the content of sessions will be published shortly on this page.

In the meantime, if you think you might be interested, contact us and we can add you to the courses mailing list to ensure priority booking.  Places will be limited and preference given on a first come first served basis.

We can still accept more delegates, closing date to apply is Wednesday 12th April 2017.
