Rock­field spotlight on how to ‘read’ build­ings

The Oban Times - - Feature -

THE ROCK­FIELD Cen­tre is host­ing an Ar­chae­ol­ogy Scot­land work­shop on Septem­ber 16 at the huts en­ti­tled ‘Read­ing the Rock­field Build­ings - in­tro­duc­tion to ar­chae­o­log­i­cal record­ing.’

There will be two ses­sions – the af­ter­noon one runs from 1-3pm and the evening ses­sion from 6.30- 8pm.

Cara Jones, work­shop co- or­di­na­tor, said: ‘These ses­sions will in­tro­duce key themes of how to ‘read’ build­ings, to no­tice changes and record them ar­chae­o­log­i­cally. Have you ever looked at a build­ing and won­dered what wall dates to when? Or have you heard sto­ries about a build­ing and won­dered if you can see any phys­i­cal ev­i­dence of it?

‘Would you like to learn how to re­search the history of a build­ing? ‘

These and many other ques­tions will be the core of the work­shop con­tent.

De­liv­ered by Ar­chae­ol­ogy Scot­land, this work­shop is part of the Adopt-a-Mon­u­ment road show - a week long pro­ject which will pro­vide free and ‘open to all’ train­ing to a va­ri­ety of com­mu­ni­ties through­out Scot­land.

Cara added: ‘We will pro­vide all the equip­ment - you just need to turn up.’

Any­one wish­ing to come along should con­tact info@ oban­com­mu­ni­
