History and Archaeology Newcastle University


This degree combines the study of both historical documents and archaeological remains to understand how past communities lived. We focus principally on the period of 400 CE to the present day, with optional modules spanning centuries and continents. You'll gain hands-on experience through a minimum of four weeks' excavation fieldwork in your first two years, plus artefact handling at the University-led Great North Museum.
