Join us for Archaeology of the British Isles, a fascinating introduction to the rich and diverse archaeology of Britain and Ireland.
In this tutor-led online course, we investigate the material culture of peoples who have settled in Britain over the millennia from the Lower Palaeolithic to the Anglo-Saxon period, and we discover the significance of some of the most intriguing sites, monuments and artefacts they left behind.
Following a broadly chronological framework through important periods, cultural influences and events in Britain, we engage with the latest archaeological research to glimpse life in past societies.
Along the way, we follow a number of recurring themes like social structure, politics and power, settlement organisation, economics and religion – all of which have left tantalising traces in Britain’s archaeological record.
Our journey will nurture a fresh appreciation for the discipline of archaeology and for the unique contribution it makes to our understanding of the human story, in Britain and beyond.
