The Bsc Archaeology (Hons) at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan)    produces graduates with sought-after transferable skills including critical analysis, communication and team working. From week one you will be in the field learning these skills on a real archaeological excavation. During the degree you’ll examine and interpret a variety of evidence from human remains, Palaeolithic stone tools, Anglo-Saxon jewellery and the latest ancient DNA evidence.

As well as lectures and tutorials, you’ll spend time each year on placement in the UK and/or abroad, working on excavations, making real discoveries and helping carry out cutting-edge research. Our graduates have been on digs at Avebury and Stonehenge in Wiltshire, Neolithic settlements and tombs in Orkney and an Anglo-Saxon cemetery in Cambridgeshire, to name but a few.


Our BSc (Hons) Archaeology course offers the specialist knowledge and hands-on skills you’ll need to explore a career in this fascinating profession.

Archaeology offers more career opportunities in the UK than some might think. It’s a profession that provides more than 5,000 jobs, in over 200 companies and contributes over £100m to the UK economy every year, in both the public and the private sector. Historic England have highlighted the need for more trained archaeologists over the next 17 years, due to the surge in major infrastructure projects.
