If you haven’t already seen it, we’re now on YouTube!
Through our channel you’ll have the opportunity to learn about many interesting topics and have all your archaeological questions answered. Videos will include how-to tutorials, Q&As, videos from sites we’re working on, and more!
Our first video is actually a part of our ‘Bare Bones’ tutorial series, where we go through the absolute basics of archaeology so you can feel confident when going on site. ‘How to tell where to dig’ covers how you know where to excavate. This includes how sediments form over time and how they present themselves when we strip back the topsoil and subsoil, at the beginning of excavation, as well as covering how human activity leaves markers in the sediments and how we, as archaeologists, can identify them.
Soon, on the channel, there will be videos about our amazing field schools that will be happening this year: the Prehistoric Suffolk project and the Medieval Mysteries of Leicestershire project. In these videos, you will get all the details about these awesome projects and how you can take part. We also have many other video projects in the works but you’re just going to have to stay tuned and subscribe to our channel to find out!
We hope that you are as excited about this development as we are and we look forward to you joining us on this journey to learn all about the world of archaeology!
