In this post discover the new places and times you could explore with courses in March.

This March why not take a trip? All you need is a computer, tablet or mobile and FutureLearn. We’ve got courses to take you on all sorts of journeys, from Ancient Rome to the 1600s, all the way to the island of Flores (with its unusual inhabitants), plus a few other special destinations:

Go underground at the Vale of Pewsey

What does an archaeological dig actually look like? Now’s your chance to find out. Join the team from the University of Reading on their course Archaeology: from Dig to Lab and Beyond and follow a month-long excavation at the Vale of Pewse – ‘an archaeological treasure chest’.

Go meet the ancestors in Flores

In 2003, in a cave on the Indonesian island of Flores, a team of archaeologists were surprised to find the skeletal remains of a mysterious new human species. Discover more about what they found with the course Homo Floresiensis Uncovered: The Science of ‘the Hobbit’ – and learn how ‘the Hobbit’ has caused huge controversy.
