Course summary

Explore topical issues ranging from human-environment interaction to rock art in the landscape, with unparallelled access to rich natural resources for landscape study in the Yorkshire Moors, Dales and Wolds.

Gain a unique perspective on landscape archaeology as you focus on human ecology and the interactions of people with their environments. You'll examine case studies from many different periods and areas around the world to understand different approaches to the study of landscape change. You'll also investigate the varying lifeways of humans through the ages, and how people have interacted with the natural world since early prehistory.

With guidance from leading researchers and experienced academics, you'll develop your understanding of the recognition, recording, interpretation and conservation of archaeological landscapes and build key practical skills in surveying, GIS, geoarchaeology and aerial photography.

Careers and skills

This course will build up your knowledge and understanding of research methods, as well as providing a thorough grounding in the fundamental concepts, techniques and current debates relevant to landscape archaeology. You'll be able to understand and critically assess information sources, gather and organise information and arguments to form independent and develop presentation skills through the delivery of seminar papers on a diverse range of topics.

All of these skills are applicable to wide range of careers in archaeology, landscape conservation and beyond, as well as further study, research and academia.
