Student Development Workshops
The SDW, since its first establishment in 2013, has brought together hundreds of students and professional archaeologists from varying specializations, institutions and countries. Please enjoy the galleries below from the different workshops over the year.
With support from PAST and the Archaeological Society of Southern Africa (Northern Branch) the 2018 SDW was hosted together with PGS Heritage in Mokhotlong, Lesotho. This SDW was the first to be hosted outside of South Africa.
The fifth Student Development Workshop (SDW) was held between the 2nd and 7th of December 2017, at Bushtrail Environmental Centre situated in the Magaliesburg area.
The 2016 SDW was held at Groenkloof Nature Reserves in Pretoria. The venue was ideal as it was situated close to highways, Gautrain and bus stations.
The third Student Development Workshop (SDW) was held between the 30th November and the 5th of December 2015, at Bushtrail Environmental Centre. This was our largest workshop yet and we held our first roundtable session.
During December 2014, our second workshop was held at the Living Landscape Project centre near Clanwilliam in the Western Cape. It was attended by 22 students, along with our 5 council members
The inaugural Student Development Workshop (SDW) was held in November 2013 near Parys in the Free State. The 5-day workshop addressed issues most relevant to young and aspiring archaeology professionals, and focused primarily on students who were in their final year of undergraduate study or those enrolled at a postgraduate level.
