The Department of Archaeology maintains a wide array of resources to assist students with their studies. We have a range of surveying, excavation, photographic and computing equipment that is available for students to use both during and outside of class times. This includes automatic levels, total stations and EDM systems, a magnetometer, side scan sonar, handheld GPS units, differential GPS unit, digital cameras, two-way radios, excavation kits and much, much more! We also have arrangements in place to borrow specialist equipment held by other areas of the university, such as a differential GPS system from Geography and resistivity surveying equipment from Earth Sciences, and surveying equipent from TAFE. Other resources for students and researchers include our digital library.
