Course summary

Find yourself immersed in the lives of our ancestors and be at the forefront of modern day historical understanding. Archaeology brings together diverse approaches to answer questions such as what our ancestors ate, what they wore, who they traded with, and the environments they lived in, while history at Southampton challenges you to interpret the history of past societies critically and imaginatively. You will study past societies through their archaeological remains and through textual sources. Modules, such as one on the medieval period, may be studied from both perspectives, or you can select modules from entirely different periods, such as the prehistoric era from Archaeology and the second world war from History. Enrich your archaeology and history learning experience by spending an academic year studying abroad.
