Course summary

The natural combination of Archaeology and History allows you to merge the study of historical texts with the investigation of past material culture. In History modules, you will cover past societies from the late Roman through to the modern period, addressing political, social and cultural themes. In your Archaeology modules, you will deepen your understanding of the past even further through the study of the material record and world archaeology. You will also take part in practical archaeological fieldwork, with opportunities both in the UK and overseas, broadening your insight into significant historical issues.You will be learning from academics who are experts in their field, in departments that are innovators in terms of their research and public engagement. This civic ethos extends to the work our students do too: help communities make sense of their origins by collaborating with academic staff on research projects, lab work and excavations, or work in local schools to encourage learning about the past.Our multidisciplinary teaching helps you develop the strongest possible set of skills and prepares you for the professional world. Our graduates are articulate, creative communicators who know how to structure an argument, and how to analyse one. They are also adaptable, curious and culturally aware. We have alumni working all over the world in a diverse range of fields, including archiving, archaeology, teaching, museums, charities, publishing, and national and local government.
