Archaeology is part of one of the most diverse and international subject communities in college. We also have a strong postgraduate presence, with around ten MPhil and PhD Archaeologists and Biological Anthropologists at any one time, alongside research and teaching staff.

The BA in Archaeology is a flexible degree, enabling students to sample new subjects such as Sociology and Social Anthropology, as well as pursuing focussed pathways in Archaeology, Assyriology, Biological Anthropology and Egyptology. It offers a springboard into academic and professional practice, alongside careers ranging from journalism to conservation, heritage management and healthcare.
