15 Credits SPRING

Pre-requisites: AAP661

Aims/Description: This unit is designed for students who have already taken a basic module in zooarchaeology (e.g. AAP661) or have equivalent experience and provides them with the opportunity to investigate the subject at a more specialised level. All key zooarchaeological areas are touched upon but more complex aspects of methods and their applications than those taught in a foundation module are presented and discussed. In other words this module moves the teaching towards full training - rather than merely educational - purposes. It is based on a variety of hands-on sessions, lectures, seminars and discussion groups.

Teaching Methods: Seminars, Laboratory work, Fieldwork, Independent Study
Assessment: Course work, Classroom testing
