Today and tomorrow will see about 24,000 people come to the University of Southampton open days. If you are one of those people we look forward to welcoming you at the archaeology department. As William Davies noted yesterday in his blog post a “range of artefacts and publications by staff will be available for guests to look at, together with a selection of student dissertations, so that people can get an idea of the high quality work our undergraduate students produce. Staff and current students will also be on hand to answer any questions.” These archaeology specific aspects will all take place at the Avenue Campus, specifically:
- 60-minute subject talk and tour of facilities 11:15 | 14:15 Lecture Theatre C, Building 65, Avenue Campus
- drop-in 10:00–16:00 Seminar Room 1163, Building 65, Avenue Campus
- 20-minute campus tour 10 :00–16 :00 South corridor, Building 65, Avenue Campus
You can keep up to date of the archaeology department’s activities you can read this blog. You can also follow us on twitter @sotonarch
For example, read about:
- A new Year 1 undergraduate module called Archaeological Thought
- Scandinavia rock art
- Antiquities trafficking
- The first major Lower Palaeolithic/Earlier Stone Age site in Greece
You can find out what our students think on the archaeology website.
During the Open Day you may see a talk by Flo Broderick, a student DigiChamp at Southampton. She visited our Portus Field School on the coast of Italy this week. She described her visit in the following YouTube video produced and published during her stay in Italy. You can also read her blog post about the visit.
You can also watch a video made by two of the University of Southampton undergraduates currently working at Portus, recorded on Tuesday.
