Overview

This course provides an exciting opportunity to understand and interpret the rich archaeological landscapes of Britain.

Landscapes, both rural and urban, represent the largest archaeological field resource available and this Master’s programme will equip you with the research skills necessary for their investigation.

Central to this course is a focus on modern techniques and approaches to the understanding of human societies, enabling you to learn a wide array of information and ideas and be trained in crucial investigative methods. You will be instructed in the avenues available for regional as well as national studies, and be introduced to a variety of research options.

The course is supported by excellent facilities, including our Charles Darwin building, our suite of five laboratories, a specialist computer facility for ISE staff and students and a GIS, mapping and visualization suite with GIS software (ArcGIS). Surveying equipment includes survey-grade GPS and a total station, gradiometers and resistivity geophysical survey kit, Trimble GeoXT mapping-grade GPS, Panasonic Toughbook ruggedised tablet PCs with integrated mapping grade GPS, and ArcGIS software. In addition, a Draganflyer X6, a state of the art “mini-helicopter”, can take vertical and oblique aerial photographs. Technician support is also available within the Institute, including a GIS technician.
