BA in Archaeology and Landscape History

The Archaeology and Landscape History degree offered at Peterborough examines British history as represented in the archaeological record and landscape from prehistoric to modern times. It examines theory and practice in archaeology and landscape history, providing students with knowledge and skills needed to work in archaeology, museums and archives.

This course is an exciting opportunity to study the increasingly popular subjects of archaeology and landscape history together by offering a multi-period, skills and techniques approach to understanding the development of human activity in northern Europe, from prehistory to the 21st Century as well as the human impact on the whole landscape from fen and coast to upland, from farmed landscapes to urban and industrial areas. You will develop skills in the variety of methods and techniques used to provide fascinating and accurate information to piece together past human activity including field walking, geophysics, handling artifacts, maps and written sources.
