Our BA (Hons) Archaeology is closely linked to the distinctive cultural heritage of Scotland, but also places all of that within a much broader global context.
The degree will provide you with a detailed understanding of the practice of archaeology. You will also develop your own practical skills in archaeology through hands on experience and archaeological placements.
You will receive research-led teaching from lecturers engaged in world-class research on projects from the Scottish Islands, the UK and Ireland, to the Atlantic region and Polynesia.
There is a strong emphasis on developing archaeological skills in a number of areas including field archaeology (for example, excavation and survey), environmental archaeology (for example, zooarchaeology, archaeobotany and osteoarchaeology) together with digital archaeology such as photogrammetry, and archaeological illustration.
