Woodland Archaeology Course


Event Details

This one day woodland archaeology course led by Christine Handley of SYBRG (South Yorkshire Biodiversity Resources Group) will include an illustrated talk, maps and books and other documentation, with a guided woodland visit to see and identify archaeological features and, in the afternoon, a practical mapping / recording exercise in the wood.  Woods can be very good at protecting historic features as earthworks (lumps and bumps) that have been ploughed out in farmed land.  Woods also have their own archaeology of features such as charcoal hearths and boundary banks that are directly related to the earlier management of the woodland.

Cost:  The full cost of this course is £100.00+VAT.  However RDPE funding may be available subject to certain eligibility criteria being met and the full completion of an Enrolment Form.  If you qualify for the funded rate, this will be invoiced at £40 + VAT on the full cost of the course (ie£20) as unfortunately, under the terms of the current funding programme, the VAT element can not be included in the funded amount.  Obviously if trainees are VAT registered, this is fully reclaimable.  The cost of the course includes all refreshments.
