The History with Archaeology programme is structured so that students can combine archaeological evidence and interpretation with historical resources to provide a fuller framework for the study of the human past.
In Year 1 students are introduced to the key principles of history and archaeology, including source analysis and research methods. In Years 2 and 3 students study a broad range of societies and cultures from across Britain and Europe from later prehistory through to the twenty first century. In Year 3, all students also have the option of undertaking a 10,000 word Individual Study that they design, research and write.
The range of history modules offered in this programme complements the archaeological ones available at every level, creating a genuinely inter-disciplinary degree programme. Over the three years of the programme, depending on the precise combination chosen, students will spend around a third of their time on specialist archaeology modules.
Please see the Archaeology and History course pages for more detailed information
about modules in each subject area.
