The Discovering Dorchester 2016 Fieldschool Registration is Open!

Registrations are now open for all of our Discovering Dorchester 2016 fieldschools!

The undergraduate fieldschool runs for two weeks from Sunday 26th June - Friday 8th July, whilst our two public fieldschools run from Sunday 10th July - Friday 15th July and Sunday 17th July - Friday 22nd July.

On both the undergraduate and public fieldschools you will be taught in small groups by experienced supervisors, learning skills in digging techniques, context recording, plan and section drawing, and geomatics. There will also be a series of lectures on various topics, given by staff from the Institute of Archaeology, including talks on animal osteology, the local pottery industry, the region through different periods, and archaeological photography.
