UCD School of Archaeology

UCD 3rd year Archaeology students-Please share

ARCH30500: Experimental Archaeology and Ancient Technologies (Monday 4th-Friday 8th September, 2017 - the week before Semester 1)

Experimental archaeology investigates how people (botte in the past built and occupied their houses, made and used materials and things, cooked food, worked the land, and carried out other tasks. This module introduces you to experimental archaeology and archaeological materials, through a field school held immediately prior to Semester 1 (Monday 4th September-Friday 8th September 2017) at the UCD Centre for Experimental Archaeology and Material Culture, at Roebuck, on the University College Dublin campus. You will participate in a range of practical experiments on houses, stone/flint, pottery, organics, food. You should attend in suitable clothing (boots, rain gear, etc) and bring their own supply of drinking water. You should also bring writing materials (pencil, notebook) and a camera (a phone camera will do). The module will be primarily assessed by means of a reflective learning journal and a project, whereby you make something and think about it in relation to archaeological evidence. Seminars during semester will help you design, carry out, and report on your project.

NB: this module is primarily taught at the UCD Centre for Experimental Archaeology and Material Culture, 9am-5pm, Monday 4th - Friday 8th September, 2017, with a small number of seminars in semester 1 to provide support for your project in Semester 1. Contact Aidan.OSullivan@ucd.ie for enquiries

Sincere best wishes to all those receiving their #leavingcertresults tomorrow.

We hope that you did as well as you hoped. If not, please don't despair. Take time to consider your next move.

You don't need us to tell you that you aren't defined by your leaving cert results and neither is your future.

In a world that tends to exaggerate everything for effect, we should let you into a little secret - these are not the most important tests in your life. Although they may be your biggest test to date, you'll find all the really big decisions still lie ahead of you.

However, navigating through this latest obstacle is an achievement that you should feel proud off and the experience will help you in the challenges ahead.

We look forward to seeing about 250 of you here in Sunny Belfield in September in our Medicine, Radiography or BHLS programmes.
