Delve into the past: Season Two
In July 2012 ARCH returned to Foulis for another two week season of digging in 2012.
The course had four classes on preparation for excavation, looking at the sites and sources in detail including historical maps, aerial photographs and documentary sources. This was followed by a two week field season in July 2012 of excavation and associated survey work where participants were trained in a variety of excavation, survey and recording techniques while digging on site. All levels of experience were welcomed, from first-time diggers to seasoned excavators.
The field season in July will be followed in September 2012 by a post excavation course looking at how archaeologists deal with all the data produced by excavations. Workshops processed the site records from our excavation, implementing post-excavation techniques, analysing, drawing and presenting the finds
The results of this season were exciting! Details to follow.
