Course content

Our MA in Cultural Materials consolidates Sheffield’s two decades of successful postgraduate provision in Archaeological Materials, Materials Culture Studies and Experimental Archaeology.

The course builds on existing opportunities in technological studies, materials analysis, material culture theory, and experimental archaeology, integrating them with added emphasis on the development of both academic and professional research frameworks.

While maintaining a commitment to the demanding technical aspects of materials analysis, this MA foregrounds the need to embed scientific materials-based research within a theoretically aware humanities-based perspective.

This programme has three streams: Material Culture Studies, Experimental Archaeology and Materials and Technological Analysis.
