Thursday 22nd March 2018 – Marlow lecture: Experimental Archaeology

Invitation from Archaeology in Marlow
Adventures in Experimental Archaeology
by Dr Jennifer Foster (UoR)

Experimental archaeology looks at all aspects and periods of archaeology, from artefacts to buildings and landscape. We ask questions of the archaeological data which are difficult to interpret from the excavated evi- dence alone, such as: how long would it take to chop down trees with a stone axe? What was this building used for?

Jennifer will be looking particularly at some experiments carried out with students at the University of Reading based on excavations of prehistoric sites. Jennifer will bring some of the artefacts created by the experiments with her to the talk.
