Location: Kent, England


The Northwestern IPD Field Studies in Archaeology: Medieval Worlds program is a four-week summer field archaeology experience, which introduces students to the culture, economy, and society of medieval Europe through an exploration of material evidence – landscapes, buildings, and objects – in the English countryside. In Summer 2013, students will join existing international research collaboration with the University of Southampton, in partnership with the National Trust, to uncover the significance of Ightham Mote and Knole, two sites dating back to the 14th and 15th centuries. Through structured fieldwork and visits, presentations, and discussions of medieval castles, palaces, and other monuments, students will receive practical training in archaeological field methods and experience the culture of medieval Europe.
