Archaeology Field School Description


Following the success of the Understanding Zooarchaeology I short course, the Zooarchaeology Team at the Department of Archaeology, University of Sheffield would like to announce a new short course 'Marine Resources'. This two day course can be taken as a stand alone course, or in combination with the Understanding Zooarchaeology I course and provides a more detailed insight into faunal remains associated with human exploitation of coastal environments. The course is heavily based on practical laboratory sessions that provide training in the identification of fish, mollusc, marine bird, crustacean and marine mammal remains. In addition, short lectures address issues of quantification, interpretation as well as introducing interdisciplinary approaches including the study of marine resources via art, fishing gear and isotopic analyses. Cases studies provide examples of how different lines of evidence are brought together to provide an integrated understanding of marine resource exploitation, often as part of a more extensive subsistence strategy, for archaeological sites in Europe.
