Prehistoric Archaeology - University of Sheffield

The BA Prehistoric Archaeology provides you with a broad understanding of the prehistoric human past. You will develop a global, critical perspective on past societies and their diverse ways of life from the Palaeolithic to the origins of farming. You will focus on specialist options including archaeological materials and the prehistory of Europe and the Mediterranean. You will develop the intellectual and practical skills necessary to discover, interpret and communicate a wide variety of archaeological evidence. You will undertake a minimum of six weeks practical experience, either in the field, the laboratory or the workplace. This experience will enable you to develop your portfolio of skills that will equip you for a career in archaeology or the heritage sector. We are a world class Archaeology department, ranked in the top 50 in the world (QS World University Rankings® 2019), and 9th in the UK (Guardian League Tables Rankings 2020) and are at the leading edge of modern day Archaeology.

Our multidisciplinary teaching helps you develop the strongest possible set of skills and prepares you for the professional world.
