Online units can be accessed at: https://ilearn.mq.edu.au PC and Internet access are required for those who wish to access iLearn. Basic computer skills (e.g., internet browsing) and skills in word processing are also a requirement. Please consult teaching staff for any further, more specific requirements.
Resources The unit will be based on the following text books, which can be purchased at the Co-Op bookstore (http://www.coop-bookshop.com.au):
Required Texts: • Balme, J., Paterson, A., Archaeology in Practice, Malden, Oxford, 2014 • Burke, H., Morrison, M., Smith, C., The Archaeologist Field Handbook, Crows Nest, 2nd ed.
Recommended Texts: • Renfrew, C. and Bahn, P. (2016), Archaeology: Theories, Methods and Practice, London, 7th ed. • Gamble, C. (2015), Archaeology. The basics, London, New York, 3rd ed.
You need to purchase a gridded lab notebook for use as a journal while in the field. Tools will be provided to you; however, if you are planning on doing archaeology again, it would be a good investment for you to put together a dig kit of your own. At a minimum it should include a pointing trowel (WHS or Marshalltown is best). Optional items include a compass, a tape measure (centimetres), a line level, a hand lens, a folding rule, a paintbrush, knee pads and work gloves (all available at Bunnings); a camera.
