Archaeological Field Methods Videos Collection 1 2009
In 2009 Dr Sarah Colley and Dr Martin Gibbs (Archaeology, University of Sydney) produced this series of edited video clips to demonstrate practical methods to archaeology students at the University of Sydney in Australia. The videos were first made publicly accessible via YouTube and incorporated into teaching of an undergraduate archaeological field methods course in 2010 and 2011. We also produced a research paper outlining staff experiences of making and using the videos for teaching and discussing results of student questionnaire feedback about the videos and the course. The results provide insight into the effectiveness of different ways of teaching practical archaeology in a context of large class sizes and limited resources and the potential of using digital video technologies to communicate archaeology to students and other audiences.
