Course summary

The past has many dimensions and there are many routes to it. Archaeology, which deals with material evidence, artefacts, monuments and buildings, is one avenue, while history, traditionally derived from written sources, is another. Through studying the history and archaeology of Wales (and the archaeology of Britain and Ireland) as the main core of this degree, you will gain an understanding of the development of Wales over the centuries, of the changing nature of society and settlement and of the historical context of contemporary Wales.

Assessment is a combination of written work, essays, examinations and portfolios. The dissertation in the final year is a major piece of project work involving research carried out under the close supervision of your tutor.

This course provides specialist knowledge and a range of analytical and presentational skills which will enable you to tackle a variety of career options centring on culture and heritage especially, but not exclusively, in Wales e.g. in archaeology units, museums and heritage centres, including the National Trust, as well as a range of directly transferable vocations. Graduates have in recent years gained careers in local government, conservation and teaching, and some have taken further training to become professional archaeologists.
