About

Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Oxford, together encompass the study of humankind from the origins of the human species to the present day. Both disciplines have a long history. Today both subjects involve a range of sophisticated approaches shared with the arts, social sciences and physical sciences.

Overview

The Archaeology and Anthropology programme at the University of Oxford pursued over three years, offers an unusually broad perspective on human societies from earliest prehistory to the present. The course offers a comprehensive guide to the richness and diversity of human cultural experience throughout space and time. By choosing to study here you will be able to:

  • explore how humans evolved
  • get to grips with major transformational processes in human history such as the development of farming, the emergence of towns and trading systems and the spread of world religions
  • learn why societies structure their families, economies and political systems in the ways that they do
  • investigate how material culture represents and reproduces beliefs and ideologies.

Fieldwork/work placements/international opportunities

As part of your course you must undertake four or five weeks of fieldwork (subject to approval by your tutors). Fieldwork can take place in field settings, or in a laboratory or museum, and involve anthropological as well as archaeological projects. Recent destinations include Azerbaijan, Denmark and South Africa. It is likely that part of your fieldwork will also involve participating in a field school near Oxford run by the Schools of Archaeology and Anthropology.
