Event description

Description

ARCS1001 provides students with a practical introduction to a broad range of archaeological methods and techniques.

Each week explores a different area of archaeological method or analysis, including field survey and excavation, materials analysis (e.g. soils, human remains, animal and plant remains, stone artefacts, ceramics, metals and glass) and the interpretation of archaeological collections and sites. The use of practical and integrated problem-solving laboratory exercises enables students to put into practice many of the concepts discussed throughout the course. There is an emphasis on object-based learning in this course, as the skills taught here form a firm foundation for future learning and competent professional practice.

Practical classes run for two hours. The best practical classes to visit will be in Weeks 4, 6, 8, and 9. The practical room is a laboratory space, so colleagues attending need to wear shoes that cover the tops of their feet, toes and heels.

Glenys is part of the HASS Gateways project developing entry courses that are flipped, literate and aligned. Glenys is an archaeologist and heritage consultant with experience in both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal cultural heritage. Her work includes the excavation and analysis of artefacts from the North Brisbane Burial Grounds as part of the redevelopment of Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane. Glenys has specialist skills in forensic and mortuary archaeology, taphonomy and archaeological science.

Glenys' teaching is characterized by her use of humour and story-telling to capture and keep student attention while she conveys core content.
