About

From battlefield archaeology, to the anthropology of warfare, to archaeologies of confinement, this Conflict Archaeology and Heritage programme at the University of Glasgow will explore in depth the many and varied ways that human conflict can be interrogated via an archaeologically focused interdisciplinary approach, encompassing time periods from the prehistoric to the modern. 

Overview

In addition to taught elements, the programme will encourage students to engage with the subject on a practical basis and will involve fieldtrips to a number of battlefields and other sites relevant to their studies.

Why This Conflict Archaeology and Heritage programme at the University of Glasgow?

  • The programme’s focus on conflict landscapes makes field trips an integral part of the MSc. Amongst the significant battlefields you will visit are the iconic sites of Bannockburn and Culloden.
  • The programme is based within the Centre for Battlefield Archaeology, which is an internationally renowned centre of excellence for the study of conflict heritage and archaeology.
  • Conflict sites, both ancient and modern, which include battlefields and other sites (such as POW camps, fortifications and war graves) have come to be accepted as important elements of the world’s cultural heritage, and this programme provides an ideal grounding if you are interested in the management of these fields of conflict.
  • You will benefit from a unique portfolio of ongoing research and archive material, including artefacts, historic documents, and other resources; you will also have access to a wide range of specialist archives, museums, professional archaeological units, and scientific institutions.

Career
