Overview of this part of the site

You have studied the material from this part of the site at lots of earlier stages in this course. Here I have provided an additional video of Simon captured on-site during the 2014 Portus Field School. This gives a final overview of the main excavation area as it was during the 2014 season.


[Extra] Archaeological Data Interpretation tasks

In the first run of the course we set a peer review exercise to examine archaeological data. Following the feedback we changed this to an optional component of the course. If you would like to see how the kinds of data we gathered at this part of the site are used in combination the [Extra] tasks below will test this. To reiterate - this is an [Extra] activity and does not need to be done in order to mark this step as complete.
