Archaeology and Anthropology - University of Bristol

Our course provides a broad training in the major theories, methods and practices in archaeology and anthropology. It will take you from our earliest human ancestors to complex societies, from Bristol to the South Pacific. You will learn critical skills in archaeological and anthropological methods, analysis and interpretation. You will also have the opportunity for excavation and anthropological fieldwork. Year one introduces the fundamental theories of the two disciplines. You will take units that introduce you to the disciplines of archaeology and material culture studies, as well as social, linguistic and biological anthropology. Years two and three allow greater specialisation in skills, regional foci and current debates. You will be able to select from a wide variety of optional units that explore particular themes, periods and geographical areas. You will become familiar with the range of research methods and theoretical frameworks employed and the sorts of questions archaeologists and anthropologists ask. In your third year you will write a dissertation and produce your own original research
