Fieldwork opportunities include work on sites in Scotland, France and across southern Europe.

Fieldwork forms an important part of archaeological study at both undergraduate level and in some postgraduate programmes.

Current or recent fieldwork (excavation and survey) has been undertaken in Syria, Cyprus, Turkey, Sicily, Romania, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Ibiza, Northern Spain, France and Scotland.

Through their participation in a variety of projects students acquire a sound knowledge of archaeological field techniques, learn the importance of teamwork, and develop other (transferable) skills.
