The course provides you with a comprehensive knowledge of both past achievements in the fields of Anthropology and Archaeology, and latest developments in anthropological and archaeological research. It also gives you an understanding of archaeological and anthropological theory, method and interpretation. The course trains you in the critical skills needed to explore the regional and global diversity of the material record and social and cultural life using comparative, cross-cultural and cross-temporal methods. In Anthropology, you will be particularly encouraged to use your knowledge of cultural diversity to challenge established assumptions embedded within the particular cultural systems, as well as within 'western' knowledge, practices and theoretical paradigms. In Archaeology, you will be particularly encouraged to develop a critical understanding of the place and importance of archaeology and material heritage in contemporary society, including the issues and controversies that they provoke. Most importantly, this course trains you to think anthropologically and archaeologically. Students are admitted from a wide variety of backgrounds, and the range of experience brought always ensures a lively atmosphere.
