About Archaeology at Cardiff University

Archaeology provides a unique perspective as the only subject which deals with all the temporal and spatial dimensions of the human past. Defined as the study of the human past through its material remains, it studies a very broad range of evidence including landscapes, buildings and monuments; buried material such as artefacts, biological remains, and structures; and written sources.

Archaeology ranges chronologically from the earliest hominids circa five million years ago to the present day, and geographically across the entire inhabited world.

The BSc Archaeology honours degree programme will train you in the science of investigation. It addresses the 'big questions' about the human past over the huge periods of time for which there are no written records, so that the forensic skills of the archaeologist are to the fore.

The aims of the BSc Archaeology degree are to:

The Archaeology degree schemes are noted for their geographical and chronological breadth and the range of choice they offer. As a student at one of the highly respected Russell group universities, you will learn with staff who undertake exciting research in archaeology and history as well as developing innovative techniques in forensics, dating, and osteology.
