THESIS Overview SEPTEMBER 2015 - AUGUST 2016

At the moment of graduation , an archaeology undergraduate student has produced a

minimum of 50,000 words in total in the form of written assignments . In the graduate phase , regular master students will increase this amount by 45,000 , whilst research master students produce an additional 70,000 words . The majority of these texts , including the thesis , are only read by a handful of people . Since 2009 the Faculty of Archaeology requires all theses from both graduate and undergraduate students to be uploaded in the digital repository . Currently , most people are unaware of the fact that information on these theses , including extensive abstracts and author contact information , can be found online . A substantial part of these works is openly accessible as well ( http :// openaccess . leidenuniv . nl / handle / 1887 / 16590 ). In order to stimulate the use of this invaluable database , and to promote student research beyond the publications in INTER-SECTION , we have decided to provide a complete overview of new theses in every edition . The list presented here contains all theses effectuated between September 1st 2016 and August 1st 2016 . We encourage our readers to consult the Leiden Repository for more information on the titles listed below .
