The course encourages students to critically evaluate historical sources and archaeological information and assess their value to our understanding of the past.

In Year 1, students examine the theory and practice of archaeology; the archaeology of the historic and prehistoric periods; the methods and nature of history as a discipline; and gain an introduction to a variety of historical periods and cultures. In Year 2, students may choose to focus their studies on a range of historical themes or societies, while also studying the archaeology of one or more European archaeological periods. They develop an understanding of research skills and knowledge to prepare for undertaking research in Year 3.

During Year 3, students may focus their studies on topics, periods or themes from Years 1 and 2 or broaden their studies to examine the archaeology/history of the Mediterranean, the Americas, Africa or the Near East. In this phase of learning, topics are covered more intensively (students with a focus on History typically work in one area through a year-long Depth Study). Students also carry out an independent piece of research on a subject of their choice in either Archaeology or History.

As part of the course, there are opportunities for students to visit archaeological sites and get involved in departmental research, which also allows them to work in new laboratories and use a range of specialist surveying equipment.
