Curricular information is subject to change
On completion of this module students should be able to:
1. Identify and clearly describe some of the more common archaeological materials and objects.
2. Identify and critically assess the use of various approaches to material culture in different research projects
3. Have introductory practical experience in some analytical methods.
We will have 12 (2 hour) contact sessions that will combine formal lectures and discussion-based seminars with practical tutorials. You will also have a number of practical sessions over the trimester, usually held on Friday morning. Notifications of changes to this timetable will be provided through Brightspace and so please do check your page continually during the year. Please note, some of the lectures in this module will be provided by specialist researchers in particular fields and typically change year-on-year.

• Feedback individually to students, post-assessment
You will receive mandatory one-to-one feedback with the module coordinator after your first assessment. This will help guide you towards making improvements for your second assessment and will be targeted specifically at structure, formatting and writing style. Feedback for your second assessment is optional, but highly recommended, and will focus on project design, expression and content.
