Humps and Bumps - Archaeological Field Visits. An Oxford University Course.

Print Page

There are archaeological sites all around us, such as hill forts and stone circles, Roman towns, ancient fields and roads. On this course we will venture out and look at the archaeological landscape, to help students pick out and identify sites on the ground.

This is a repeat of Humps and Bumps 5. There are archaeological sites all around us, such as hill forts and stone circles, Roman towns, ancient fields and roads. On this course we will venture out and look at the archaeological landscape, to help students pick out and identify sites on the ground. We will visit: Abingdon; Durrington Walls and Woodhenge; Barbury Castle and Sonning. The first and last sessions will take place in Waingels College, Woodley from 10-12am. Students will take their own cars and at the first session those without transport will be able to arrange lifts. The next four sessions are 4 hours out in the field and we will meet at agreed points at 10am. The field trips will not be too strenuous, but some sites have restricted access and agility will be required. Students should come equipped for rain (as this is an all-weather course) and bring packed coffee/lunch.

Our career pathways show you a typical route through the various stages of learning, what you will learn along the way and the careers these programmes could lead onto.
