About

In the Archaeology programme of the University of Amsterdam, you will study past societies – from the Celts and the Romans to the Middle Ages and beyond – and their importance in today’s world. Not only will you research and excavate the material remains of human activity, but you will also learn how this translates to knowledge about earlier cultures.

Overview

Archaeology in society

Urban expansion, road building and railway construction: a lot of building takes place across Europe. Before the construction starts, an archaeological survey is always conducted. This is but one of the reasons why there is a need for archaeologists who can lead excavations and interpret the results. The study of Archaeology not only concerns the past, but also the present: as an archaeologist, you reflect critically on the role of archaeological heritage in our society.

The Archaeology programme of the University of Amsterdam devotes attention to the study of pottery, glass, metal and other materials, the relationships between humans and landscape, and the presentation of research results in various media. This degree programme is unique in the Netherlands in how it focuses on Europe – from the Mediterranean to Middle and Western Europe, including, of course, the Netherlands and Amsterdam.
