Archaeology is a lively and welcoming department that will soon be celebrating its 50th anniversary as an academic discipline at the University of Southampton (2016). We have an international reputation as one of the leading centres for the study of archaeology, with high profile research projects carried out all over the world. Our syllabus covers the span of human history, from the emergence of our species to debates about the role of archaeology in contemporary society. Our staff are involved in archaeological fieldwork and investigations that feed into all our teaching. The range of taught programmes, as well as our research community and excellent facilities, emphasise how archaeology is a truly interdisciplinary subject that bridges the divide between the Humanities and the Sciences.
The University of Southampton is hosting a month of public events celebrating the humanities, as part of the national Being Human festival.
Starting on Monday 2 November, experts in archaeology, literature, languages, history, music, film, philosophy and beyond will be exploring “Being Human: Religion and Me” at the University’s Avenue Campus and across the city.Being Human Festival
