Courses

F31 Archaeobotanical Analysis In Practice: Seed Identification Feb 2023

Description

The overall aim of this course is to prepare students on the practical hands-on aspects of sorting, and especially the identification of archaeobotanical macro-remains. This short course is focused on seed identification, and while there will be some discussion of topics such as archaeobotanical research questions, quantification and field sampling, these are not covered in detail.  This is a crash course in seed botany for the archaeologist, focusing on the botanical “nuts and bolts” of archaeobotanical seed research. Practical demonstration sessions are focused in most detail on major Old World seed crops (including Near Eastern/European as well as South/East Asian and African taxa; cereals, pulses, oilseeds, fibre crops), fruits and nuts, and selected systematic groupings (key families and orders) that recur as arable weeds in the Old World. Crop-processing, detecting domestication, and weed ecology will also be discussed. Sessions will also cover sorting, drawing and measuring seeds.

 

Training 5th-8th November; Room 313 Monday-Friday 0930-1730,13-17 Feb 202.
