Anthropology explores the fundamentals of what it means to be human. It takes the whole world as its point of interest and brings one face to face with the eye-opening variety of human behaviours both in the present and from the past. While archaeology is the study of the human past through an examination of physical remains such as stone tools, pottery and bones, through to buildings, structures, monuments and landscapes. It attempts to reveal how both contemporary societies and past societies are organised, how humanity interacts with the environments and landscapes, and how ideas about the world are visible in the objects people have created.
The programme is assessed in a variety of ways and will include several of the following type of assessment: essays of 1,000 to 4,000 words in length, document analysis, book/ journal reviews, short reports and reflective journals, time tests, seen and unseen tests, field journals, posters, group and individual presentations, dissertations of 10,000 words, wikis, commentaries and film evaluations.
