Lincoln Archaeology Field School, UK


The Lincoln Archaeological Field School is open to all students taking history, archaeology, anthropology or related degree programmes who wish to gain transferable academic credits in fieldwork.

This summer, the Field School will continue its investigation of the medieval settlement and landscape of Harpswell, located about 12 miles north of the historic city of Lincoln. Excavation promises to be even bigger and better than last year’s and will revisit the site of a suspected high-status or manorial residence and its associated precinct. The highlight of the 2016 investigation was the uncovering of a substantial masonry structure, which appears to have been part of a formal walkway or approach. The main aim of the 2017 excavation is to discover where the approach led to, with the tantalising prospect that it is the approach to a residence of the Archbishop of York, known to have existed at Harpswell during the medieval period. All training is given by qualified and experienced staff. Practical on-site training will be complimented by a number of workshops both on site and in the University’s Archaeology Lab. The 2017 season will run from 19th June to 15th July (application closing date is 31st May).

The Field School is worth 5 US credits (or 10 ECTS or 20 UK credits). Cost for four weeks training, tuition, examination fees and credits is £1500. Accreditation will be approved upon successful completion of a formal written assignment.
