Overview

The systematic recovery and critical interpretation of such evidence is essential to the development of archaeological knowledge.

Opportunities

The practical emphasis starts at the beginning of the degree; you spend your first week on one of the University’s training excavations learning how to dig. Teaching on the rest of the degree is split evenly between practicals, lectures and fieldwork. 

Previous students have excavated extremely significant finds while on this course, including the rare Anglo-Saxon find in Oakington, Cambridgeshire, of the skeletal remains of a high ranking woman buried with a valuable cow.

The degree in  Archaeology at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan)   is designed to give you an in-depth knowledge of archaeology, focusing in particular on the archaeology of Britain. It also adheres to UK professional standards, allowing students to develop a competitive skill-set.

 UCLan Archaeologists have experience both in professional and academic archaeology, and Archaeologists from a wide range of external organisations are involved in the delivery of this MSci. All our staff are actively researching in the UK and we have several on-going international projects. Lecturers will supervise you in their own substantial research project.
