The next two chapters consider how you can get the best out of doing ﬁeldwork. The information is aimed directly at you as a neophyte researcher engaging with religion oﬀ campus. This chapter focuses on group ﬁeldwork, organised by a tutor, where you probably are not involved much in choosing the places or planning exactly what you do when you are there. The following one deals with all the diﬀering aspects of doing independent ﬁeldwork. Obviously there is overlap in the skills needed for any study in the ﬁeld, so when you have read this chapter youmight like to read the sections in chapter 5 that are relevant to your group ﬁeldwork.
