About BA Archaeology and Anthropology

This course provides a broad training in the major theories, methods and practices in these two disciplines, taking you from the earliest human ancestors to complex societies, from Bristol to Africa and the South Pacific.

You will learn critical skills in archaeological and anthropological methods, analysis and interpretation. You will also have the opportunity for excavation and anthropological fieldwork.

Year one introduces the fundamental theories of the two disciplines. You will take units that introduce you to the disciplines of archaeology and material culture studies, as well as social, linguistic and biological anthropology.

Years two and three allow greater specialisation in skills, regional foci and current debates. In year three you will write a dissertation, producing your own original research. You will become familiar with the range of research methods and theoretical frameworks employed, and the sorts of questions archaeologists and anthropologists ask.

A wide variety of optional units exploring particular themes, periods and geographical areas are available at second and third year level.
