Science of The Past: Archaeology Masterclass

University event offered by University of Bradford

Event Summary:

This session is aimed particularly at students in year 12 and 13 and adult learners

Full Event Details:

This workshop will demonstrate some of the exciting ways in which science can be used to understand what happened in the past. Modern archaeology involves many scientific techniques, familiar through television programmes such as ‘Time Team’. The University of Bradford has an international reputation for teaching and research in these areas, and this workshop will give you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the following areas:
- Seeing the invisible - using electrical and magnetic measurement to detect buried remains without excavation
- From trench to bench - using biological remains to find out what people ate in the past
- Molecules through time - making and analysing prehistoric glue

The topics will be introduced using talks about the scientific principles, case-studies of
archaeological sites and hands-on laboratory/field activities.

Suitable For:

Bookings by Teachers for Key Stage 5 (Students aged 16-18)
Individuals (Enquiry not required to be through a school)
