UCL - INSTITUTE OF ARCHAEOLOGYMODULE NUMBER: ARCL0036 Archaeological Illustration and Imaging 2019/2020Year 2/3 module, BA/BSc module15 creditsDeadlines for coursework for this module: 9 March 2020Target dates for the return of marked coursework to students: 10th April 2020Co-ordinators: Nadia B. Knudsen, Fiona Griffin and Antonio ReisCo-ordinators’ e-mails:’ room number is 413Telephone number 020 7679 4743 Internal 247431. OVERVIEWShort descriptionThis module will introduce students to both the academic and practical aspects of traditionalmethods of drawing archaeological finds and the application of technical photography and imagingfor the publication and research in the archaeological and heritage sectors. The academic aspectswill concentrate on: types of technique, style, materials and equipment used, the layout andpresentation of drawings for publication, scales and the requirements for publication reductions.The practical work will involve the preparation of drawings to the "camera ready" stage (i.e.presented to publication standard). The practical sessions will concentrate on the drawing of flintwork, pottery, metalwork and stone artefacts, digital drawing including Adobe Photoshop andIllustrator and computer aided design, capture and process datasets of images for each imagingmethodology (RTI, Technical Photography, 3D and Multispectral).Week-by-week summarySession 1 - 4th Oct. 1- 4.30pm. - Nadia KnudsenShort presentation on archaeological illustration generally.

(1 - 4.30pm) - Fiona GriffinDigital drawing, Hybrid illustrations and finds drawing layoutUse hand drawn finds drawings to scan and layout to create a finished figure with scale and textDemonstrate the process of digitizing a pencil drawn object to a final illustration for publishingCreate a hybrid illustration using finds photos and drawn section to create a final figureSession 9 – 6 Dec. (1 - 4.30pm) - Antonio ReisInvisible data – Multispectral imaging RTI - Will showcase surveys and digital recording projectsusing a multispectral camera and a flowchart method developed by me. How to capture andprocess images datasets and successful -ARProcess data and basic interpretation. At least one student or group should capture and processtheir data. We need to find painted pottery, leather, wood, or I can take a small hand paintedartwork I ve used before.Output; one image showing details and information, that otherwise would be invisible to the nakedeye.Session 10 13 Dec. (1 - 4.30pm) - Fiona GriffinSummary of the different types of illustrationsLook at different types of publications and types of illustration appropriate for each. Discuss thepros and cons of each. Ways of using these in essays and dissertations as well as academicjournals, online journals and social media.2

Reconstruction drawings (creation- hand and digital, artist renderings and more simplisticdiagrammatic drawings)Practical- finish hybrid drawings or create a simple diagrammatic illustrationIndividual StudyBackground reading and study of the drawing of artefacts.Completion of drawings for portfolioEssayMethods of assessment - This module is assessed by means of:(a) One essay of 1,500 words, which contributes 40% to the final grade for the module.(b) A portfolio consisting of 7 images (60%).Teaching methods – The module is taught through lectures and a small number of shortpresentations and practise sessions Discussion sessions/seminars/laboratory sessions have beenincorporated into the scheduled sessions for the module. In addition, the further practise sessionswill be made available to give the students greater familiarity with the materials, methods andtechniques covered in the module (to be arranged with the course co-ordinators). Discussions willtake place in class, and independent study and practise is encouraged and necessary in order tocomplete the assessments.Workload - There will be 10 hours of lectures and 20 hours of practical practise sessions for thismodule. Students will be expected to undertake around 50 hours of reading for the module, plus50 hours preparing for and producing the assessed work. Independent project work will take about58 hours. This adds up to a total workload of some *188 for 0.5* hours for the module.2. AIMS, OBJECTIVES AND ASSESSMENTAims – This part of the course will introduce students to both the academic and practical aspectsof traditional methods of drawing archaeological finds. The academic aspects will concentrate ontypes of technique, style, materials and equipment used, the layout and presentation of drawingsfor publication, scales, and the requirements for publication reductions. The practical work willinvolve the preparation of drawings to the 'camera ready' stage (i.e. presented to publicationstandard). The practical sessions will concentrate upon the drawing of flints; pottery; metalwork,stone and bone artefacts. Digital photography and computer production and manipulation ofdrawings will also be covered.Learning Outcomes –Transferable skills other than the specific content of the course will include:some basic drawing skills, hand-eye co-ordination, visual analysis, critical and interpretive skills instudying primary data, learning to draw for reduction; skills of neatness and how to present workfor publication; and developing ideas in discussion. Confidence in the use of simple cameras anddigital manipulation will be instilled. Introduction to scientific and technical imaging applied toArchaeology and Heritage.Coursework –Assessment tasks – 1 essay (ca. 1500 words excluding title page, contents pages, lists of figureand tables, abstract, preface, acknowledgements, bibliography, lists of references, captions andcontents of tables and figures, appendices) and 1 portfolio consisting of 7 publication-readyimages.Essay questions1. Select two site reports/monographs of the same period (e.g. Prehistoric, Roman or Medieval)and from any geographical region of your choice, compare and discuss how the illustrations3

Describe the ‘journey’ of an object/artifact of your choice from drawing board or imagingmethodology to publication. In relation to your intended audience (professional journals, museumaudiences, websites etc.), outline/explain the rationale behind the decisions you made regardingstyle of illustration or chosen imaging methodology (presentation, views and sections etc.) andmethod of publication.3. Discuss different ways in which illustration or different imaging methodologies are used inarchaeological dissemination and how illustrations and images can aid in this process. Considerhow they have changed over the last 30 years. Using examples from the following publications:books, journals (printed or online), magazines and websites.Submission date: Monday 9th March 2020Portfolio – To be submitted as hardcopy only.1.
