BSc Archaeology at Winchester is designed for students who wish to study the archaeological application of biological, physical and earth science techniques. The degree combines an exploration of relevant scientific methodologies and approaches, with an examination of their use in resolving archaeological problems.

Programme structure

Year 1 examines the theory and practice of archaeology; historic and prehistoric periods; and the methods, theories and approaches that underpin archaeological science.

Year 2 introduces the scientific skills commonly used in archaeology. There are core modules in Geographic Information Systems,
Global Environmental Change and archaeological fieldwork. Students may focus their studies on biological, geological and/or physical science topics, while also studying the archaeology of one or more European archaeological periods.

During Year 3, students may focus on topics, periods or themes from Year 2 or broaden their studies to examine the archaeology of the Mediterranean, the Americas, Africa and Anatolia/the Near East. Students also carry out a piece of applied scientific research, normally using original laboratory and/or field data.

The Department of Archaeology at the University of Winchester is a Registered Organisation with the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA). Students can become Affiliates of the CIfA. After graduation they can build up field experience to progress to full membership categories.

Students undertake fieldwork throughout their course, and during Years 2 and 3 can attend two periods of summer excavation. Students are required to attend the summer training excavation for four weeks during the first summer vacation and should ensure that they have accommodation available during late May and June.
