Training

Since FSARG was establish in 2005, the group has been very active in developing new skills and knowledge. As such, many members have taken part in training sessions that cover a multitude of disciplines. Training is organised as and when that topic is needed, not provided as a set course.

 

Over the years the group have received training on;

 

  • Medieval Pottery - from the excellent John Cotter, as well as our own in-house training
  • Post medieval pottery - Andrew Linklater
  • Prehistoric Pottery - Nigel Macpherson-Grant
  • Environmental Training - Lisa Gray
  • Brick and tile - Louise Harrison
  • Flints - Geoff Hallewell of the Dover Group
  • Illustrating - Barbara Mcnee
  • Map Regression - Ges Moody and Emma Boast from the Thanet Archaeological Trust
  • Stratigraphic Training - Simon Holmes
  • Project Management in Archaeology - Andrew Linklater
  • Levels Surveying - in house
  • Metal Detecting - in house
  • Geo-resistivity - in house

 

In addition to this, each new member has full induction training - this focuses on health and safety. FSARG members have also attended weekend courses at the KAFS on Flint implements; Roman pottery and Medieval pottery.
