Program description

Sheffield’s unique topography makes it one of the best places in the UK for archaeology. Its rich industrial heritage is well documented. But what many people don’t realise is that one third of the city is inside the Peak District National Park, 555 square miles of ancient landscape, complete with medieval villages, Bronze Age and Neolithic monuments and a network of caves decorated by ice age hunters.

Our archaeology department is known for its friendly, supportive atmosphere. They are serious academics too: Sheffield is ranked 13th in the world for archaeology in the QS World University Rankings 2016.

The BA explores the development of humanity from hominids to modernity. You’ll get training in techniques such as survey and excavation. And there are plenty of opportunities for fieldwork, here and overseas. Graduates go on to work in commercial archaeology units, heritage, culture and the environmental sector. Employers include English Heritage, Channel 4, the British Museum and the House of Commons.
