MRes Archaeological Science is an exciting opportunity to develop advanced knowledge and understanding of specific areas of archaeological science by following a personalised, individual study pathway, in close collaboration with our staff. You will further your own intellectual development and enhance your independent research skills by completing a substantial archaeological research project.
It is ideal preparation for students wishing to undertake a PhD in archaeology, and follows the research model (one year research training plus three years research) suggested by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. It also provides a wide range of highly sought-after skills in research, critical thinking, data analysis, and communication which will provide the foundation for a future career in archaeology and heritage, as well as many other sectors.
This course offers you the flexibility to tailor the content to reflect your personal interests and research topic. Our teaching draws on the extensive and world-leading research expertise of staff within the Department of Classics and Archaeology. We have internationally-renowned expertise in Bioarchaeology (palaeoanthropology, archaeobotany and zooarchaeology) and Archaeological Materials (particularly glass), with staff members who work across regions and chronological periods ranging from Old-World Prehistory from the UK to South Africa, the ancient Mediterranean and the Roman world, and Medieval and Post-Medieval Europe.
