This course is an exploration of the core laboratory techniques in archaeology. This is a practical course, in which students learn foundational methods and apply them to collections research in the Laboratory of Archaeology (LOA) labs. Students will work on a series of analytical projects individually and collectively, culminating in an analysis of a previously excavated site whose materials and data are housed in LOA. The course includes laboratory experience, teaches data management skills and includes a short field component on the use of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) at a local archaeological site.
The textbook for this course is: Archaeological Laboratory Methods: An Introduction, 6th Edition by Mark Q Sutton and Brooke S. Arkush, Kendall Hunt, Dubuque, IA. (2014).
