Archaeology is the study of our human past – but it’s so much more than history! And it isn’t just digging and finding things underground either. Archaeology uses a huge range of evidence to help us tell stories about our ancestors and find out about their everyday lives.

Humankind is almost 4 million years old, but written records have only been made by people for about the last 5,000 years. Archaeology helps to fill in the huge gaps in human history before writing, and it can add more detail and fresh perspectives to the study of past societies even after writing was invented.

Archaeology can also lead to either a career in Archaeology/Heritage/Museums, or provides the transferable skills needed for almost any career in any sector (from the Civil Service, to the Police Force, to Business, Accounting, Law (with a conversion degree), Hospitality, Media, TV & the list goes on).
