Archaeology — North East
|Rank||University Name||Next Steps|
Durham University is no stranger to the Archaeology Top 10 having placed within it every year since we started publishing online in 2008 – in fact it has never left the top four. Durham's Department of Archaeology scores well across the board but sports particularly impressive Research Quality with a whopping 3.11/4.00.
Durham is on the doorstep of some of the UK's most impressive archaeological sites including Hadrian's Wall, so students will be spoilt for choice when it comes to practical fieldwork experience. The department boasts excellent professional links and a pretty decent Graduate Prospects score of 75% certainly supports this statement.

With the joint-best results for Student Satisfaction and pretty tough Entry Standards and good Graduate Prospects – a degree at Newcastle would be a fine choice for Archaeology students. The degree aims to go beyond inspiring students, and gives the opportunity to enjoy hands-on, direct experience of human history.
