The programme builds on research undertaken at the University of Bradford, using our wide range of specialist facilities and collections.

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.

You will have the opportunity to use our Visualising Heritage facilities at the University of Bradford Biological Anthropology Research Centre.
