Department of Archaeology

Archaeology welcomes new students

Archaeology at Nottingham has always been a friendly and welcoming department. Our staff and students form a community, sharing a common enthusiasm for the past, whether it be centred upon

  • the origins of human culture
  • prehistory 
  • the Greek and Roman world
  • the Dark Ages, or
  • the medieval period.

Our students are encouraged to develop their own specialist interests, to be involved in the research and field projects carried out by staff, and to study in the relaxed and informal atmosphere which is so much a part of the department's character.
