The research atmosphere I experienced during my MSc made me believe Southampton was the right place for me to do a PhD. A number of ongoing archaeological projects really appealed to me, and some lecturers allowed me to develop my own methods to contribute to them.

I saw the Mary Rose as a schoolboy not long after it was raised and to go back and see so many of the 19,000 or so artefacts was wonderful.

Having completed my undergraduate and MSc degrees here I enjoyed working in Archaeology and it had access to all the resources I would need for a MPhil.

While I initially sought out Southampton for the department's pioneering work in archaeological theory and praxis, I was also delighted to discover a very welcoming faculty and group of intellectual peers that made my time at the university incredibly meaningful and worthwhile.

"The opportunities available to me at Southampton have been amazing in breadth and how rewarding they have been for me. I have investigated archaeology throughout the entirety of human time, travelling to Bulgaria, Spain, Lithuania and across the UK"

Meeting and interacting on a daily basis with people from a wide variety of nationalities and backgrounds makes for a very unique research environment with a diverse range of topics and geographical regions. The exposure to these areas of research was among the best parts of the programme.

The research interests of the lecturers at Southampton were the best match to support my project and the department has a strong focus on computer base research that would allow me to develop some specific aspects of my research.
