Overview

We have unique strengths for student opportunities in historical archaeology, archaeological sciences, and the ancient indigenous past. State-of-the-art laboratories specializing in applied archaeological sciences, archaeobotany, archaeoentomology, archaeological conservation, prehistoric, historical and aboriginal archaeology integrate researchers into community-university research initiatives from Northern Labrador and the Arctic, to French Guiana and from British Columbia to Northwest Europe. 

As one of the largest Archaeology departments in the country, we train our graduate students to become effective researchers, critical thinkers, and active stewards for our shared archaeological heritage.

The Memorial University of Newfoundland accepted our first M.A. thesis in Archaeology in 1972 and since then our graduate students have completed over 140 Master's theses. We introduced a doctoral program in 2001.
