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

Here are some fun things we did: 

* Discussed Archaeological materials and artefact types
* Discussed Fields of Specialisation
* We had a fun practical about: What will we dig in 2150?
* Discussed Dating methods 
* Discussed Interpreting the archaeological record
* Discussed Academic writing
* And we had whip demonstration where we got to try it ourselves! It was loads of fun!

Here are some pictures from the weekend:

Everyone loves an Indiana Jones cake!
