Resource base of hypertext materials for the University of
Edinburgh's first-year Archaeology One course, with lecture summaries,
bibliographies, and links to related web-sites: an expanded WWW version of
the course handbook. Theory and Method workshop sessions are also
summarised on-line, and students are encouraged to contact tutors directly
by email with queries, as well as to fill in on-line feedback forms.
Extremely user-friendly support system for undergraduate students.
On-line distance learning archaeology modules
No such modules are yet available from Europe: here is an example from
Florida, USA: Florida
Archaeology A college-level on-line course about Florida archaeology for
degree and non-degree students, delivered entirely by the internet (with an
optional RL field trip). "Your text books and computer are all you'll need
to complete the required classwork"; tests and final examination are
available on-line, and are submitted by email; access to the 'classroom' is
restricted to students who have registered and paid.
An 'electronic companion' to Kevin Greene's book Archaeology: an Introduction (3rd edition, 1995 Routledge (UK) / Univ of Pennsylvania Press (US)) is now available on an experimental basis from the University of Newcastle. Greene has used the book's chapter headings and subtitles (plus a minimal amount of explanatory text) as a framework for a collection of links to relevant URLs. This should help students who already know the book to locate specialist sources quickly, but it should also work independently. A full explanation will be found on the home-page. All comments gratefully received - particularly from student users!
