Our facilities include one of the largest  skeletal collections in the country, dating from the Neolithic to the 19th century, as well as facilities for image analysis, materials investigations, and botanical and faunal analyses.

While the majority of teaching is campus-based, field trips investigate the role of the past in contemporary society.

  • award-winning Disability Service
  • well stocked libraries and excellent IT facilities

Research

Archaeology engages the entire human past in all its temporal and spatial dimensions. It is fundamental to our understanding of how we evolved and our communities developed, and how we study, preserve and interpret our past.

At Bradford, our distinctive approach emphasises the integration of the natural and physical sciences, providing excellence in a comprehensive range of archaeological topics, with emphasis on both teaching and research, believing the two activities to be mutually dependent.
