Archaeology and Geography students investigate the long relationship between human societies and their physical and social environments over time. Informed by international research projects, contemporary archaeological and environmental issues are studied - from human evolution to African Iron Age dynasties, complimented by the geographic themes of environmental processes and change. Students develop field and lab skills and an understanding of the principles and methods of acquiring, analysing and archiving archaeological data. Field trips both in the UK and abroad are integral to the course and enable students to put theory into practice as they explore classical archaeological sites and natural environments. The opportunity to take a year of paid professional experience develops skills in the workplace.
