Archaeology is an exciting subject that studies past human societies through the material remains they left behind, investigating important developments in the human story over a long period of time. The greater part of the human story is beyond the range of traditional historical methods and can only be studied using archaeological approaches to the ancient past. Archaeologists regularly collaborate with scientists working in such disciplines as botany and physics, analysing environmental remains and dating ancient objects.
A degree in Archaeology is flexible in regard to employment, whether in the archaeological profession or some applied heritage area. Students also acquire important skills that are transferable to other areas of employment, including the ability to think critically, to problem solve and to carry out research, as well as practical ability in fieldwork and computer applications.
