Covid-19 Update

Given the Covid-19 pandemic, the College calendar has been changed for the first term of the 2020/21 academic year and has introduced a two-week October half term break. This break is from Monday 19 to Friday 30 October during which time the College is closed to Learners. The College office will be open from Monday 19 to Friday 23 October (telephone/email enquiries open) and closed from Monday 26 October to Friday 30 October (telephone/email enquiries closed until Monday 2 November). From 2 November we are increasing the areas in which a face mask or covering is required to be worn.

What opportunities will this course give me?

For some learners this course will provide a basis for further study or a move into working with local societies on their volunteering programmes as well as a stimulating an interest in the wider subject.

What will I be learning?

This online course looks at all aspects of UK and World Archaeology including practical aspects, recent finds, research and developments. It will have one core subject per term which will deepen your knowledge of a particular aspect of the broad subject that is archaeology.

A college certificate will be awarded on request.

Why is this course for me?

You will learn by looking at examples of new and old archaeological research from across the world, examining the projected theories and looking at alternatives.

How will my learning be enhanced?

As well as being a member of other relevant archaeological and historical groups, the tutor is a member and Chairman of the Winchester Archaeological Rescue Group (WARG). From his first dig in 1975, he has continued to enjoy and indulge his passion for archaeology and history.

The tutor has given talks and has written several books, pamphlets, and papers on Archaeology and History.

He continues to learn through reading, studying and attending symposiums.

What do I need to sign up?
