Online Introducing Archaeology course

Date: Course begins Monday 15th January 2018 and runs for 5 weeks

Location: Online

Cost: £199 (minus 20% discount for Imperial staff – use promotion code IMP2018)

Introducing Archaeology is a five-week, tutor-led online course that offers a broad introduction to the archaeological processes of investigating past societies.

Examining a wide range of international case studies, we discover the methods and techniques archaeologists use and learn how these help us to understand the way people lived and died in their ancient worlds.

From the initial phases of research in libraries and archives, through processes of site survey and excavation to the post-excavation analysis of artefacts and materials, we gain unique insights into all stages of an archaeological project.

We then adopt a global perspective to look at threats to important archaeological sites around the world, and explore how you can get involved and make a contribution to this exciting discipline.

If you have any questions about the course, please contact Dr Mark Anderson
