This course will cover information such as why archaeologists excavate at all and how excavation helps us to understand how people lived in years gone by. It will include the types of equipment used, recovery, care and identification of artefacts. The course will finish with a practical exercise in excavation at the dig site. This course is for adults only. 

The morning of the course will be held at BHP offices to learn about the theory, before heading to Divis to put what we have learned into practice.

Tea/coffee provided, bring your own packed lunch.  Wear suitable outdoor footwear & clothing.
