Experimental Archaeology

Author(s): Peter J. Reynolds

Year: 1972


The newsletter reports of the first course in experimental archaeology, taught in 1972 at Birmingham University. The seminar included 6 lecturers who each presented a topic in experimental archaeology. Beside the lecturers, 2 practical workshops were offered: weaving and pottery making. The practical workshops offered the direct approach to experimental archaeology and its questions, issues, and challenges in science.

The review also includes reports of on going experiments at the Butser Ancient Farm, for example, the roundhouse, a barn, the Brandean Gateway, and grain storage.
