CURRENT ISSUES IN ARCHAEOLOGY
CREDIT POINTS 30

Course Co-ordinator: Mr D Paterson / MS C Wickham-Jones

Pre-requisite(s): Available only to student at level 4 of an Archaeology degree programme.

Note(s): This course is not available in academic in 2012/13.

The course integrates various components of Archaeological study to date, and students are expected to draw together, and build on, their knowledge from previous courses to tackle challenging and perhaps unfamiliar topics through analysis, discussion and open debate. Students will consolidate their skills as confident and autonomous learners and communicators through oral presentations and written work.

12 x 2-hour seminars, one per week (with 6-8 hours of set reading per seminar).

Attendance to the seminars is mandatory and students are expected to actively contribute to the discussion. In addition, students will take it in turns to give a 20-minute introductory presentation at the start of each seminar, to develop discussion questions and to lead the seminar. These presentations will be assessed. Students are also required to attend the Northern Archaeological Research Seminar Series.

In addition, students will be required to:

1st Attempt: Continuous assessment (based on a portfolio of coursework as described above) (100%).

Resit: No resit is possible.
