Course content

The interdisciplinary nature of archaeology underpins our understanding of past societies, guided by new theoretical frameworks and investigative methods. We believe in the contemporary relevance of archaeology, and have a strong tradition of investigating the politics of the past and its representation in literature and other media.

We offer supervision for research in a wide range of areas, from the Palaeolithic to industrial archaeology, from the interpretation of material and culture to the politics of the past. You will have the opportunity to participate in a lively research community.

Areas of research include: archaeology of the Roman provinces; art, representation and heritage; artefact studies and analyses; maritime archaeology; medieval and historical archaeology; social archaeology of later prehistory.

Assessment methods: Thesis (75,000 words maximum), viva voce.
