An Introduction to Architecture for Archaeologists

November 28, 2008

This course is a brief introduction to dating architectural styles and features, and provides a simple ‘tool kit’ for archaeologists who may need corroborating dating evidence to unravel the sites or landscapes on which they are working. It will outline approaches to the interpretation of architectural evidence and explore the evolution of architectural styles from the pre-Conquest period to the 20th century. It will also look at a series of key building types – especially churches, polite and vernacular housing, and industrial buildings – emphasising the principal characteristics which assist dating.
Dates: Mon 30 to Tue 31 Mar 2009
