Studying Archaeology is ideal if you’re fascinated by both the ancient and more recent past and if you want to explore and investigate the material remains of previous societies and cultures. It will allow you to get ‘hands-on’ with the past and explore civilisations and people from throughout history, in a practical and interesting way.

The Archaeology and History community at BGU is a vibrant community of staff and students. Our research ranges from Prehistory to the present day, from Britain to Europe and further afield.
