Archaeological and Forensic Sciences

The School of Archaeological and Forensic Sciences uniquely integrates Archaeological Sciences, Biological Anthropology, Cultural Archaeology and Forensic and Medical Sciences to further the study of people, their society and their environments in the present and the past. Our approach is profoundly multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary, bridging the sciences and the humanities.

This vision is promoted through the school's specialist groups including the Biological Anthropology Research Centre, the Stable Isotope Centre and Visualisation Heritage - the University centre where archaeologists and forensic scientists use the latest technologies to capture, image, analyse and disseminate human activity from the past and the present.

We teach exciting programmes that use leading research to inform teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
