Scientific analyses of archaeological remains are today answering some of humankind's most fundamental questions. If you want to learn the skills required to join this vibrant area of scholarship, the Archaeology BSc will train you in scientific methods used at the forefront of many important discoveries. Taught by world-leading researchers in materials analysis, bio archaeology and environmental reconstruction, this degree provides you with experience of the key issues and methods world-wide. As with the Archaeology BA, this degree programme will also provide you with a fundamental understanding of archaeological methods and theory combined with the study of the archaeology of specific geographical areas and chronological periods. Single Honours students will be required to complete four weeks of supervised fieldwork. This involves two weeks of residential archaeological training on our field school at the end of Year One and a further two week placement at the end of Year Two. This programme is available with a Year in China. The Year in China allows undergraduate students the opportunity to spend one year at our joint venture, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), following XJTLU's BA China Studies degree classes. XJTLU is a fully English-speaking university, located in Suzhou. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in China please put the option code YC in the Further Choices section of your UCAS application form.
