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 and 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. 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.
