M.Sc.-Environmental Archaeology and Palaeoeconomy
Human beings construct themselves, and the societies within which they live, in a constant dialogue with the world of Nature. The study of this dialogue has been one of the most engaging and productive branches of archaeology in recent decades, and lies at the heart of our long-standing and very successful programme in Environmental Archaeology and Palaeoeconomy. This programme delivers both intensive training in environmental and economic archaeology (with the opportunity to specialise further in one branch of these related fields), and an understanding of how these skills and knowledge might be deployed to advance our understanding of the relationship between people and nature in the making of human history. Studies of contemporary ecology and economy are emphasised as a basis for investigating the past. The ability to reconstruct and understand past environments and economies is critical to both professional and academic archaeology. This programme is, therefore, designed both to appeal to those who want to pursue doctoral research in the subject, and to meet the need for skilled specialists within commercial archaeology, as well as in governmental and non-governmental organisations.
