History and Archaeology

This new course has been designed to provide students with the opportunity to study the past through both documentary records and material remains. During the degree students will split their time equally between learning and using historical and archaeological approaches to the study of the past. You will study a range of periods and themes spanning pre-history through to the twenty-first century. Archaeology is the study of human societies and brings together different ways of thinking about the past through the analysis and interpretation of material and environmental remains such as artefacts, monuments and buildings. You will also develop a strong grounding in History, by learning the methods and techniques used by historians and studying particular aspects of the past, time periods and different geographical areas. By bringing these two disciplines together in this course, you will approach the study of past societies and events using a range of analytical skills. During the first year you will develop a strong foundation in both disciplines. For the remainder of the degree you will further develop these skills, whilst increasing the breadth and depth of your knowledge in the subject areas, culminating in working towards producing specialised work in the final year.
