Inaugural Lecture - The past is not what it used to be: archaeological science in the 21st century
Event Date: Tuesday 1st November
Time: 6.30pm for a 7.30 start
Advances in technology are making a difference to all areas of our lives – even to how we understand the past. The use of technology in archaeology has been revolutionary, not just in the kinds of equipment that can be used, but also that so much can now be used in the field, giving almost instant analysis.
Bournemouth University’s Professor Kate Welham is an expert in archaeological sciences, with a particular focus on remote sensing techniques. Her work has taken her to sites all over the world – from Tanzania and Spain to Easter Island and closer to home – Glastonbury Abbey. Over the course of her career, she has seen the field of archaeology change and grow immeasurably.
Kate’s lecture will share stories of her fieldwork experiences across the world, the way technology has revolutionised the way archaeologists work and how she has involved BU students in her research. There will also be an opportunity before and after the lecture to meet some of BU’s current archaeology students and see some of the equipment used by BU’s archaeologists out in the field.
