Soils, Sediments and Landscapes in Archaeology

Soils, Sediments and Landscapes play vital roles in understanding and interpreting archaeological contexts. This unique one-day workshop will review the processes of landscape formation, sediment deposition, and pedogenesis, the relationships between the three, and the implications for archaeology.

The morning classroom session will include brief discussions of soil morphological properties and interpretation, soil nomenclature, soil taxonomy, and digital soil mapping. The afternoon field portion of the course will be used for the practical application of concepts discussed in the morning.

Friday May 11th or Saturday May 12th
