Introduction to Field Archaeology workshop

Archaeology Scotland led Introduction to Field Archaeology workshop outside on and a desktop workshop

Join Archaeology Scotland and Lorn Archaeological and Historical Society on a practical introduction to field archaeology. 
The training day will take place at Barcaldine, and focus on nineteenth settlement but look for traces of earlier sites which could be present. 
The day will include an introduction to upland archaeology and you will also learn about walk over survey techniques including measured sketches and photography of archaeological sites and monuments.  
We will also consider the ways in which other forms of archaeological investigation and interpretation can potentially be used by communities wanting to explore the stories of places which matter to them.
It’s a great opportunity to begin to learn about archaeology for the first time, or help refresh some skills, and the day will have lots of opportunity for discussion among the participants so we can learn from each other. (full details will be sent to attendees) 

Deskbased archaeology and research.  
Join Archaeology Scotland and Lorn Archaeological and Historical Society on a practical introduction to desk-based archaeology and research. 
You will learn about readily available online resources which can help with your research on sites, monuments and places you are interested in knowing more about.   
These online resources may be useful for your own research and / or designing activities for other groups who may want to learn more about where they live and develop digital skills

The workshop will be held in Oban, between 10 am and 12.30 pm

We are VERY interested in learning of people in our community who would be interested in leading activities in our local area and help them with any resources to support them to help our community.
