About

Individual study pathways will be created based on your interests and your chosen area of research specialism.

Overview

MRes Archaeology provides you with the opportunity to develop advanced knowledge and understanding of specific areas of archaeology 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 specialists working in Old-World Prehistory, the ancient Mediterranean and the Roman world, and Medieval and Post-Medieval Europe, as well as internationally-renowned expertise in bioarchaeology and archaeological materials. You can follow a specialist pathway focusing on a specific period or region, or practical training in archaeological methods, and will undertake independent research supervised by a member of staff.

For those in current employment, the MRes can be studied over two years on a part-time basis. As teaching is largely undertaken through individual tutorials or small groups, there is a great deal of flexibility to organise your time around existing commitments.
