Archaeology at Sheffield is built on the understanding that human beings construct themselves, and the societies within which they live, through their activities in the world. They create their material world, the world that is left to us as archaeologists, through technological practice. The application of scientific techniques to the study of archaeological materials is therefore pivotal to our understanding of material culture and the people who made it. The MSc in Archaeological Materials provides you with training in the principles and application of such analytical techniques. In addition, ethnographic studies and experimental work are used to provide you with detailed insights into the relationship between human action, technological process and material culture. Practical work includes experimental reconstruction and analysis of high temperature industrial debris and artefacts made of metals, glass and ceramics.
