Please see below the first two Occasional Master Classes in Archaeology and Heritage Management for Semester 2, 2016.

Each year, the Archaeology Department coordinates a series of specialist masters classes. These classes are intended as a supplement to formal topics, offering students the chance to learn about specialist topics that they may not ordinarily have much exposure to. The series is occasional and reflects the availability of specialist speakers throughout the semester, so there will be weeks where there are no classes scheduled. All Graduate students are welcome to attend these classes, while some are also available to Undergraduates. Enrolments are essential.

Certificates of completion will be provided to all participants. These will be emailed to students who attended the week after the class in question.

If you have feedback about classes, or want to suggest a topic for a future class, please email Dr Mick Morrison.


Series Coordinator:


Please Note:

1. Enrolments close two days prior to the advertised class time;

2. Classes are subject to change at short notice (e.g. time, room location). Please check your email the day before any class to ensure that you have the most up to date information;

3. Please notify us if you are enrolled but are unable to attend. Please provide at least 24 hours notice so that we can make your place available to other students. If you do not do this you may be excluded from the next two (2) classes, except where there is a genuine emergency. Please see below the first two master classes for Semester 2, 2016.
