UK Archaeology Courses

Introduction to Archaeology

Archaeology degrees at UK universities are structured so that during the first year you will be provided with the key skills needed to become a sound archaeologist, whilst in years 2 and 3 students can then choose to tailor the course for what interests them, such as delving into specific cultural periods of time throughout history, or examining artefacts and bones.
