What they say:
Archaeology at Cambridge it is an outstandingly broad and exciting subject, equally rewarding for those who feel at home in the sciences, the humanities, or both.
With an academic staff of 21, and growing, our teaching and research embrace all aspects of the subject, including Archaeological Theory, Archaeological Science, and Museum and Heritage Studies.
A typical admission offer for the Undergraduate degree is A*A*A. No particular subjects or combinations of subjects are required.
We maintain close links with other Departments across the University, as well as with the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, whose collections are used in teaching. Undergraduate students also participate in field trips and excavations, and have the opportunity to be involved in fieldwork abroad.
Our Department has an active programme of Access and Outreach initiatives. Teachers and pupils interested in receiving information about them are invited to sign up to the Department’s Access Newsletter.
What we say:
Archaeology at Cambridge is the longest-established and one of the most respected of such courses in the country. Small student numbers facilitate regular contact between students and staff in teaching and seminars.
The McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research hosts a wide range of research seminars, discussion groups, and facilitates interaction within a diverse post-graduate and post-doctoral research environment. The Institute produces the Cambridge Archaeological Journal and publishes the McDonald Institute Monographs.
Postgraduate courses include taught and research degrees allowing specialisation across a wide spectrum of interests, including Egyptian and Mesopotamian languages (also available at Undergraduate level).
