This is the first of a series of ArchSoc-organised workshops providing student members with the invaluable opportunity to get familiar with technical equipment and processes that are fundamental to field archaeology, in a supportive environment.

Workshop content

After a short theoretical introduction into what a total station is and can do, participants will get lots of practice setting up the station and recording points. The workshop is ideal to get some hands-on training in using the total station before heading out into the field.

Who can participate?

The workshop is aimed at people with minimal or no experience with total stations. Participants must be ArchSoc members. You may join on the day.
