Archaeology – science or humanity? (Cafe Sci)

Date: Tuesday 5th November 2019 at 7pm

Venue: Bardon Mill and Henshaw Village Hall

Doors open 6.45pm for a 7pm start.

Mike Maguire is putting together a talk entitled “Archaeology – a science or a humanity?”.

Mike’s career and interests have spanned many aspects of science, technology, engineering and, more recently, archaeology. He will share his thoughts and experience of what distinguishes the so-called “STEM” subjects both from each other and, more particularly, from the Humanities. With wide-ranging examples and a few anecdotes he will say where he thinks archaeology fits into this pattern and what this implies for the types of evidence which are valid in archaeology. Questions, comments and discussion from the audience will be an important part of the proceedings!
