Course description

The Archaeology Diploma Course begins with an explanation of what archaeology and field archaeology are, an exploration of the theoretical basics of field archaeology and who carries it out. You’ll also be introduced to the various types of archaeology, including classical, historical, underwater, ethno, landscape and household archaeology.

The course explains the types of archaeological sites and artefacts and the features of archaeological sites and the various methods used to find them. These include the use of existing knowledge, documents, aerial photography, ground surveying, chemical surveying and accidental discovery.

We’ll then move onto the process of excavation. We consider the preparations to be made before an excavation takes place, the types of excavations, how to dig and the process involved in excavating.

We’ll explore what happens after an excavation with a look at archaeometry, visual examinations and the scientific analysis of artefacts. You’ll learn about how particular materials and organic remains are analysed, the processes of relative dating and absolute or chronometric dating, and transformation processes and how archaeologists interpret the collated data.
