Archaeology Field School Description

This course is an intensive introduction to materials science, deterioration processes in marine environments, pre-disturbance conservation surveys, in-situ conservation and stabilisation, recovery, initial storage, stabilisation and transportation of artefacts, and the storage and display of conserved artefacts. It is designed to provide students with a general theoretical and practical background to archaeological conservation for both marine and terrestrial environments. It should also equip archaeologists with the appropriate conservation knowledge and skills necessary for the effective management of submerged cultural heritage.

This topic will be taught in intensive mode during one week and will necessitate involvement and input from a range of maritime practitioners. SCUBA diving qualifications are NOT necessary for participation. The body of the topic will comprise lectures, a practical exercise and a tutorial.
The practicum will be taught at Flinders University with the support of Western Australia Museum staff.
