Expedition Handbook

Student Expedition Handbook

This handbook was written by two undergraduate geographers at Newcastle University, based on their own experience of planning and conducting their dissertation fieldwork. It is therefore written by students, for students, and aims to convey the information students need to organise their own expedition. It also contains testimonies and advice from previous groups, to give the reader an idea of what to expect and what they can gain from geographical fieldwork.
