Course details

Modules

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. To be able to understand the past in any depth, engagement with theoretical and ethical issues is needed. This means we explore issues such as heritage, representation, land use, technology, environmental change, death, conflict, beliefs and the evolution of the human body, mind and ideas with a view to broadening and widening knowledge of how humanity has arrived at the position it is in now.

Assessment method

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, field journals, posters, group and individual presentations.
