Since FSARG was establish in 2005, the group has been very active in developing new skills and knowledge. As such, many members have taken part in training sessions that cover a multitude of disciplines. Training is organised as and when that topic is needed, not provided as a set course.


Over the years the group have received training on;


  • Medieval Pottery - from the excellent John Cotter, as well as our own in-house training
  • Post medieval pottery - Andrew Linklater
  • Prehistoric Pottery - Nigel Macpherson-Grant
  • Environmental Training - Lisa Gray
  • Brick and tile - Louise Harrison
  • Flints - Geoff Hallewell of the Dover Group
  • Illustrating - Barbara Mcnee
  • Map Regression - Ges Moody and Emma Boast from the Thanet Archaeological Trust
  • Stratigraphic Training - Simon Holmes
  • Project Management in Archaeology - Andrew Linklater
  • Levels Surveying - in house
  • Metal Detecting - in house
  • Geo-resistivity - in house


In addition to this, each new member has full induction training - this focuses on health and safety. FSARG members have also attended weekend courses at the KAFS on Flint implements; Roman pottery and Medieval pottery.
