This course will provide a practical introduction to landscape archaeology, based on the Sedgeford landscape and its location in North-West Norfolk.
Combining taught sessions (including a brief overview of settlement and field patterns), document and desktop research, and guided fieldwork, students will be able to experience a range of techniques used in the study of landscape. These will include: the use of archive material, maps, aerial photographs, place and field name studies, the internet, basic computer mapping, and field survey work, including the use of GPS for recording.
Experience of the local landscape is paramount in understanding how past societies interacted with their landscape, the fundamental stage on which people acted out their lives. The interaction between people and their landscape often leaves fragments of those actions, and from those clues the landscape archaeologist can begin to build up a picture of landscape change through time, and of the lives of the people that were such an important part of that process. As with all our courses, participants of all ages and backgrounds are welcome.
