Message from Professor Alan Outram, Head of Archaeology
Archaeology at Exeter is currently involved in many exciting projects in Britain and around the world. In addition to academic classes for Masters students, there will be many opportunities for both Masters and Research students to become personally involved with the research being conducted in the Department. We currently have active fieldwork and research projects in Britain, Europe, South America, North America, Central Asia and South Asia. Students have taken part in all these projects. In addition to lectures, we also have regular visiting speakers who talk about new discoveries. We encourage all our students to get involved and take an active role in our academic community.
We have also just begun an interdisciplinary, split-site PhD programme with NIAS in Bangalore.
Archaeology, as a discipline, will be able to offer you a wide range of personal, academic and practical skills. This suite of abilities should stand you in good stead for whatever future programme or career you decide to take.
