While the courses are recognised by Tel Aviv University, their credit value at another institution is at the discretion of the institution. The course provides classroom and fieldwork training in archaeology and history, which allows students to earn university credit while they excavate in Israel.
All lectures are free and open to all our students and excavation team members to attend. If you want to achieve formal course credit, register and we will add the fee to your final excavation invoice. In this case, the course is 1000 NIS, and includes field training experience and assessments.
Course: Introduction to Field Archaeology
(3 Credit Points)
Course Coordinators: Helena Roth and Nitsan Shalom
“Introduction to Field Archaeology” will be delivered during the 2018 excavation season in English. The aim of this course is to introduce students to the theory and practical skills that are associated with field archaeology. The course includes four major lectures presented by specialists in the areas of field assessment and practice, reading and writing field reports, identifying and assessing pottery, and archaeological drawing and surveying.
The goal of the course is to supply students with the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge required to conduct an archaeological excavation. The four lectures will be delivered on Sundays and Tuesdays during the evening.Registered students are required to complete assigned tasks in the field under the guidance of their Area Supervisor. Students apply their acquired skills through the submission of a final archaeological report. Final grades are to be determined through an assessment of the quality of the final report, completed tasks, attendance, and participation in class.
I would like to sign up for the following course(s) for credit. I understand that the cost is 1000 NIS per course. I also understand that I must be a registered participant in The Lautenschläger Azekah excavation in order to take the class for credit.
