Synopsis: This unit introduces the student to the practical side of archaeology in Victorian sites: excavation and recording techniques, and how to integrate fieldwork results with information preserved in public and private archives.

The student participates in all aspects of archaeological excavation work, records the findings in a detailed, professional manner, and undertakes assessment of the discoveries. The final eight weeks is devoted to archival research and the preparation of a supervised research essay.
