Course summary

Use traditional and leading forensic techniques whilst studying in a city embedded in Roman history.

The Roman period remains at the heart of developments in archaeological science. The study and debate about the creation and collapse of complex civilisations has considerable direct relevance today.

This course focuses on continent-wide debates about the nature of European and ethnic identities, which developed in the Roman period and which continue to have resonance hundreds of years later.

We’ll cover new fields of investigation, from new scientific methods to dynamic fields of enquiry that place discussions about gender, life cycle and contemporary heritage issues to the fore. You’ll acquire distinctive expertise in this field of archaeology.

The impact of York’s heritage embedded as it is in the remains of a Roman city, and our links to archaeological resources means that we are ideally placed to support the study of the Roman period in many ways.

You can tailor your course to suit your interests. You can study European Roman archaeology incorporating funerary archaeology and draw on our expertise in European Iron Age and early medieval archaeology.

Careers and skills

Roman Europe is a defining archaeological period. With your knowledge and laboratory and/or field-based skills you will be well placed for a career in the archaeological and heritage sectors. Your skills in analysis, communication and problem solving will be valuable across a range of career opportunities.
