Course Description

 

The course will provide an introduction to general curatorial principles in relation to managing the impact of development upon the historic environment, and how these should be specifically implemented for Palaeolithic remains - while the general principles are the same for the Palaeolithic as for other periods, there are some differences in the nature of Palaeolithic remains that require different approaches. The course will include introductory presentations followed by worked-through case-studies for desk-based assessment and field evaluation of Palaeolithic sites.
