Landscape Archaeology Masterclass with Stewart Ainsworth at Epiacum – June 2019


but if you want to go on the waiting list for the next one…



Fancy a whole weekend learning Landscape Archaeology with a professional archaeologists Professor Stewart Ainsworth from the Time Team TV programme and Al Oswald from York University’s Archaeology Department?

Well you can.

Stewart Ainsworth and Al Oswald

We are running a small group masterclass at Epiacum over the weekend of 14th – 16th June 2019

You will quickly learn to distinguish archaeological features in the landscape that others miss, and how the landscape can quickly start to tell you a story about what has happened in that landscape.



“What an amazing experience. Stewart and Al were a mine of information and we quickly started to decode things I couldn’t even see before. Before the course, these were just fields. Now they are full of structures, artefacts and history. To think we found a village from over 2000 years ago!”


The masterclass is aimed at beginners and no previous experience is required. In fact the only things you will need is a stout pair of walking boots, waterproofs (this is the Northern Pennines in England), some enthusiasm and one or two small items (don’t worry we will give you full instructions).



What a fantastic weekend. Brilliant organisation by Stewart, Al and the Epiacum team. The structure of the tasks really helped to bring life to the continuity of occupation. I really enjoyed the great team spirit and camaraderie. see you next time!”  (September 2018)
