Industrial Archaeology: Paul Palmer

"The study of past industries is an aspect of archaeology that is gaining much momentum currently. The term was originally applied to evidence from the Industrial Revolution period onwards but is now also, correctly, embracing earlier times when ‘industrial-scale’ production is evident in the archaeological record. Our course will examine all aspects of this fascinating field of human endeavour in this country."
