Tenders are invited for Unearthing Our Heritage (Reading in the Dean)
Forestry Commission (as lead partner of the Foresters’ Forest Heritage Lottery Funded Landscape Partnership Programme)
Estimated Contract Value £40,000
Contract End Date: 31/08/2016

Location: Forest of Dean

The Forestry Commission (as the lead partner of the Foresters’ Forest Heritage Lottery Funded Landscape Partnership Programme in the Forest of Dean) is inviting tenders for the development, implementation and reporting on a programme of archaeological works to support the community exploration of heritage landscapes in the Forest of Dean. The first project is focused on training local people in the basics of archaeological investigation and surveying and then exploring some of the 1700 lidar data points from work undertaken by the Gloucestershire County Council Archaeology Service in the Dean. The second project is about encouraging people to go out and make a photographic record of heritage features in the landscape to identify those sites that are important to the communities and therefore warrant remedial action (undertaken in a separate project). The third project concerns further archaeological investigations which may encompass geophysics, trail trenches/pits to enhance knowledge of the existence and preservation of archaeological remains.

PhD Project - Developing Archaeomagnetic Dating for Neolithic Scotland
School of Archaeological Sciences, University of Bradford and Historic Scotland

Supervisor: Dr Cathy Batt, University of Bradford

Co-supervisor: Nick Card, Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology / Prof Carl Heron, University of Bradford

Project summary

This PhD project is a collaborative venture between the University of Bradford, Historic Scotland and Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology and offers the opportunity to conduct high impact research, whilst working in a team with field practitioners, heritage professionals and archaeological scientists.

The aim of this PhD project is to develop archaeomagnetic dating in the Neolithic period in Scotland, using ongoing excavations at Ness of Brodgar, Orkney, as a case study. The research will build capacity in archaeological science, develop a new chronological tool for use in Scotland and will contribute to geophysical understanding of the Earth’s magnetic field in the past.

Fired archaeological materials and sediments can be dated by comparing their magnetic properties with known changes in the past geomagnetic field. The principles of the method are well established and it is increasingly used within multi-method chronologies. However, the development of archaeomagnetic dating in the Neolithic in the UK is hindered by the lack of dated magnetic measurements defining geomagnetic change in that period. This PhD project will address that lacuna by using archaeomagnetic measurements on material from the ongoing Ness of Brodgar excavations, in conjunction with radiocarbon dates, to define geomagnetic changes which can then be used to date other sites. Excavations at Ness of Brodgar have revealed a large number of fired structures within well-dated sequences and preliminary investigation has demonstrated that they produce outstanding magnetic results. Samples will be collected from features revealed by ongoing excavations and the stratified nature of deposits and extensive radiocarbon chronology will allow Bayesian statistical methods to be used to improve the precision of dates. Suitable materials from other Scottish sites will be incorporated, as they become available.

Entry requirements

Upper class second degree or equivalent in archaeology, archaeological science, geophysics or a similar topic. The successful applicant is likely to have a relevant Master’s degree and experience in related laboratory or field studies. English qualifications of at least IELTS 6.5 or above.

Funding

The PhD is funded by Historic Scotland, University of Bradford and ORCA. The award will cover full-time University tuition fees, research expenses, and annual maintenance allowance in line with those provided by Research Councils UK www.rcuk.ac.uk/skills/training/

The studentship is available to UK/EU students who are eligible for Home/EU fees www.bradford.ac.uk/fees-and-financial-support/tuition-fees/fee-assessment/
