Environmental Archaeology

 

Date: w/c 16th July 2017 

 

This course will be focused on acquiring a wide range of knowledge on the environment of Britain during the many centuries of occupation at Sedgeford. Specifically, we will focus on the environment of Norfolk using the abundance of reference material collected at Sedgeford. We will be covering the essential skills required to ascertain human relationships with their environment including topics such as food procurement, animal husbandry and farming techniques.

We will divide our time between lectures and “hands on” work where you will learn the skeletal anatomy of different types of animals as well as identification through a microscope of micro flora and fauna. We will use the Sedgeford archive to take a look at how animal assemblages and micro-flora finds can be interpreted.
