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, and the environments they lived in, while history at Southampton challenges you to interpret the history of past societies critically and imaginatively. This historical archaeology degree will give you in-depth knowledge of both subjects, and develop your understanding of earlier human societies. You'll also learn how to identify and excavate archaeological sites, extracting as much information as possible from materials and records.Personalise your course with a wide variety of optional modules, from American slavery and the French Revolution to human origins and the emergence of civilisation. You'll also take part in at least 3 weeks of fieldwork in the UK or overseas. Our year abroad destinations include the University of Malta or the Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona. Our digital humanities facilities will allow you to study and research through cutting-edge technology, such as virtual reality, 3D scanners and printers, and a 360 degree fully immersive audio-visual centre. Supported by an expert team, these technologies will enable you to start making and exploring in new and immersive ways.
