The Roman Dig program is divided into the following sections.
Practical Archaeology: Roman
Students are invited to excavate a recreated Roman provincial site. They will present hypotheses on the sequence of events based on interpretation of their evidence. Students are guided through practical archaeological excavation and recording techniques and information will be available to help them identify their finds. Ethical and practical issues in archaeology are discussed, such as the treatment of human remains and what the scientific analysis of these remains can tell us about ancient remains. This program will help students to develop skills in critical analysis of primary evidence.
