    BA Archaeology

    Year one

    In the first year, you will be introduced to the discipline of archaeology: understanding the past through the study of its material remains. This is achieved by studying the general principles and methods of how archaeological sites and remains are recovered and interpreted and by seeing how our knowledge of the development of Europe, over great spans of time, is illuminated by archaeology.

    Year two

    In the second year, five more advanced modules continue your progress in understanding the principles and practice of archaeology. You will explore major themes such as Technology and Production and the History and Theory of Archaeology.

    You will also develop practical archaeological research and IT skills, including the techniques of archaeological draughtsmanship. In addition, you can choose to specialise in specific time periods and areas building on the introductory modules of the first year.

    Year three

    Your final year gives you the chance to undertake your own research project which you will write up as a dissertation. The rest of the year is taken up with a variety of modules of your own choosing from the wide range offered by the Department. The Department offers modules covering the full range of archaeology from the Stone Age to the medieval period.
