    This degree will provide you with a strong foundation in the advanced theoretical and practical skills necessary for independent research in archaeology.

    You will have the opportunity to develop a critical understanding of the potential and limitations of different forms of archaeological evidence. You will deepen your understanding of the themes and periods of the past and engage more critically with archaeological issues and debates. You will be able to develop your knowledge and research skills through a variety of taught modules, culminating in a dissertation.

    During your time here, you will have access to dedicated Masters study space and more one-to-one contact with staff than you would have had at undergraduate level. This will help you develop fuller research and academic skills.

    This Masters Degree develops your research and analytical skills, providing you with an excellent foundation for further study or career progression. There is also the option of doing an extended dissertation, which is a longer, more in-depth piece, giving you a taste of what it would be like to write a PhD thesis.

    The School of Archaeology and Ancient History has internationally recognised strengths in research and teaching in all fields of classical archaeology, as well as in prehistory, medieval archaeology, and the theory and practice of landscape archaeology.

    Core module: Practice and Theory in Archaeology

    This module explores advanced theoretical issues in archaeology through close consideration of illustrative case studies involving the analysis and interpretation of archaeological materials. You will be challenged to embrace critically the embedded nature of theory and practice in archaeology, and to assess the connections between particular archaeological paradigms and methodological approaches to the analysis and interrogation of archaeological evidence.
