The Archaeology of Buildings: a Practical Introduction
3-day workshop: May 1-3, 2017

Drawing upon the expertise of the historian, the architect, the architectural historian and the archaeologist, the discipline of “Buildings Archaeology” has become one of the leading specialist disciplines in the conservation of historic buildings and sites.

Held on site at Cole Island in Esquimalt Harbour this workshop focuses on the detailed survey and analysis of the historic naval structures dating from between 1850 and 1940. Two of these structures are currently undergoing conservation, and the course will use this opportunity to consider the formal and informal role of buildings archaeology in the conservation process. Students from all backgrounds are encouraged to attend.

Topics include:
·         background documentary research
·         historic construction technology
·         principles and practices of structural archaeology
·         measured survey techniques
