So this weekend was the first weekend of An Introductory Workshop in Archaeology held by HeritageworX that I attended.

Here is some fun things we did: 

* Discussed Archaeology in popular media
* Discussed the Archaeological record
* Discussed the Archaeology and the law
* Discussed the Locating of archaeological sites
* Discussed Maps, aerial photographs and satellite images + Surveying and mapping

And much much more!!

* Then we did some mock excavations:
