There are no prerequisites for this short course and we welcome applications from people of all nationalities and anyone over the age of 18, although people will find it easier to complete if they have some understanding of the potential archaeological uses of geophysical prospecting techniques.  A background reading list can be provided to students upon request if they wish to do some preparatory reading prior to attending.  Please note that acceptance into the course is not automatically guaranteed, as there are limited places.

We expect this field school to be of particular interest to:

  • Students of archaeology, geology, geography, environmental management, heritage, geophysics and other related fields
  • Archaeology professionals who wish to develop a better understanding of how geophysical techniques might be applied in the consulting and research arenas

A moderate level level of fitness will be necessary for the outdoor components of this field school.
