Join us for Archaeology of the British Isles, a fascinating introduction to the rich and diverse archaeology of Britain and Ireland.
In this tutor-led course we investigate the material culture of peoples who have settled in Britain over the millennia, from the Lower Palaeolithic to the Norman period, and we discover the significance of some of the most intriguing sites, monuments and artefacts they left behind.
Following a broadly chronological framework through important periods, cultural influences and events in Britain, we engage with the latest archaeological research to glimpse life in past societies.
Along the way, we follow a number of recurring themes like social structure, politics and power, settlement organisation, economics and religion – all of which have left tantalising traces in Britain’s archaeological record.
Our journey will nurture a fresh appreciation for the discipline of archaeology and for the unique contribution it makes to our understanding of the human story, in Britain and beyond.
