This year’s London fieldschool will take place in partnership with the Thames Discovery Programme at the Greenwich Palace site, an area which stretches 550m from the Greenwich Ferry Jetty to the former Power Station jetty.
As well as large features, there is also the potential for small finds to be discovered on the site, with evidence in the area from the Neolithic (Stone Age) through to the 20th century, this will be an exciting site to work on during your fieldschool. During the fieldschool you will be able to look at the many different features, which include a 12th century jetty, and assist with their recording, contributing to the on-going work of the Thames Discovery Programme.
Remember you can join the NAS for the fieldschool in Greenwich, whether you are working through the ELearning programme, you wish to refresh your skills, collect data for a NAS Part 2 report or for fieldwork experience to count towards your Part 4 Diploma. Don't forget if you are attending the fieldschool as part of your ELearning course, you will need to complete the theory elements before taking part.
Where is it? The Fieldschool will be run in Greenwich, London and will meet each morning at the Queen's Stair, Greenwich Palace/Old Royal Naval College
If you would like to make a weekend of it and join us for the Introduction and Part I fieldschools, there are many different accommodation options in London. Further information can be found on the Visit London website.
Qualifications and Equipment: This is a dry fieldschool so there are no additional qualifications required. All neccessary survey equipment will be provided on the fieldschool.
