Archaeological Sciences

We uniquely integrate Archaeological Sciences, Biological Anthropology and Forensic Sciences and share an interest in the study of people and their environments in the present and the past. Our approach is profoundly multidisciplinary, bridging the sciences and the humanities.

Our teaching is led by research and practice. The breadth and depth of staff expertise informs an approach that combines formal, up-to-date instruction with extensive hands-on experience in the laboratory and in fieldwork. The work placement, a one-year professional training scheme, which has run successfully for over 25 years, adds tremendously to student experience and employability.
