I spent the afternoon with the MA in Landscape Archaeology. Bob Johnston was setting the MA students the task of recording a landscape with a written description, a sketch drawing and a photographic record.
I was there to discuss archaeological record photographs and be on hand to chat to students as they recorded the landscape features. It’s my first time meeting the students, at least some of whom I’ll hopefully be working with during the residency.
The aim is to encourage everyone to take record photographs. Next week we’ll ask each person to talk about one of their photographs in a seminar.
