Hello All,

Martin Carver's 2010 Society of Antiquaries Rhind Lectures are now available for free from the Society's webpages: More details below.


Design vs Dogma: Reflections on Field Archaeology

23 Apr 2010 - 25 Apr 2010
The Rhind Lectures presented by Professor Martin Carver, University of York,
Friday 23rd April to Sunday 25th April 2010

[Image: %7B68FC0B0E-73CE-48B3-924E-156EE70C0493%...Poster.jpg] The purposes of archaeological investigation in the field, its methods and the circumstances in which it is deployed, have diversified radically in recent years. Half a century has passed since Mortimer Wheeler gave his Rhind Lectures on ?Archaeology from the Earth,' so it seems a good moment to reflect on what the international academy, the profession, government and society want from archaeological fieldwork, and how their diverse agendas might be addressed to the mutual benefit of all.

Martin Carver is emeritus professor of archaeology at the University of York, Editor of Antiquity and the author of Archaeological Investigation (Routledge, 2009). He has undertaken or advised on field projects in England, Scotland, Sweden, France, Italy and Algeria, including numerous commercial projects and major research campaigns at Sutton Hoo (Suffolk) and Portmahomack (Easter Ross).

The 2010 Rhind Lectures were presented in the Royal Society of Edinburgh Wolfson Lecture Theatre and recorded by the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland using Camtasia software, and produced as MP4 files available to view and download from Screencast:
