Archaeology building

Our £2.8m Archaeology building has specialist bone, stone, skeleton and ceramic labs for the study of archaeological finds, as well as seminar and research rooms. Built with sustainability in mind, it uses mostly natural ventilation and underfloor heating. The glass entrance atrium features a 2.5 metre high sandstone megalith sculpture by the British artist Gary Breeze. The building also houses the UK Subject Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies.

There is lots of green space to enjoy at Avenue Campus
