Course summary

BSc Archaeology at Winchester is designed for students who wish to study the archaeological application of biological , physical and earth science techniques. The degree combines an exploration of relevant scientific methodologies and approaches, with an examination of their use in resolving archaeological problems. The first academic year examines the theory and practice of archaeology; historic and prehistoric periods; and the methods, theories and approaches that underpin archaeological science. The second academic year introduces the scientific skills commonly used in archaeology. In addition to the core modules, you may focus your studies on biological, geological and/or physical science topics, while also studying the archaeology of one or more European archaeological periods. During the third academic year, you may focus on topics, periods or themes from the previous academic year or broaden your studies to examine the archaeology of the Mediterranean, the Americas, Africa and Anatolia/the Near East. You also carry out a piece of applied scientific research, normally using original laboratory and/or field data. The Department of Archaeology at the University of Winchester is a Registered Organisation with the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA). You can become Affiliates of the CIfA. After graduation you can build up field experience to progress to full membership categories. You undertake fieldwork throughout the course, and have the opportunity, after the first academic year, to attend two periods of summer excavation. You are required to attend the summer training excavation for four weeks during the first summer vacation and should ensure you have accommodation available during late May and June.
