About

This Archaeological Sciences programme at University of Bradford gives graduates in Archaeology and related subjects a systematic training in the application of modern scientific methods.

Overview

The Archaeological Sciences programme at University of Bradford gives you the practical, analytical and interpretative skills you need to apply a wide range of specialist approaches, preparing you not only for research in archaeological science but also to pursue career opportunities in all areas of mainstream archaeology.
