Archaeology is a lively and welcoming department that is celebrating its 50th anniversary as an academic discipline at the University of Southampton in 2017. Ranked 27th in the world for Archaeology and 3rd for Research Power in the UK, we have an international reputation as one of the leading centers 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.
