Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

History and Archaeology

These FSC courses cover many facets of history and prehistory, from stone age times to the origins of our modern industrial society including historic transport.

They cover the stories of particular areas or the people and communities who have lived there. Some titles take a broad view of community life, looking at the nature of changes in several places; others focus on particular aspects of our historical and industrial heritage.

With their careful blend of field excursions, slideshows, discussions and other activities, these courses are suitable for anyone curious to learn how the past can be brought to life and the way people's ideas and actions have shaped today's landscape and built environment.
