School of History, Classics & Archaeology

Archaeology programmes

Archaeology is the study of the human past through artefacts and the contexts in which they occur throughout history.

We offer something for everyone interested in archaeology, from prehistoric art to laboratory work, zooarchaeology and digital applications in archaeology.

The international coverage of our courses extends from Britain and Europe through to Turkey, the near east and Egypt. We cover a broad chronological spectrum that reaches back to our early human relatives, and extends into prehistoric periods and the classical world.

With such a diverse range of specialisms on offer, you’ll be able to tailor your degree to meet your specific interests and ambitions.
