Archaeology at UWTSD Lampeter is one of the most dynamic, high profile, and research-intensive programmes.
Located in a beautiful landscape, Lampeter and the surrounding areas have a uniquely historic and archaeological character which students in this discipline get to enjoy.
We offer many opportunities for practical, on-site activity which is rooted in an exploration of this historic region, while also being global in our outlook.
Archaeology is the study of the human past through an examination of physical remains such as stone tools, pottery and bones, through to buildings, structures, monuments and landscapes. It attempts to reveal how both contemporary societies and past societies are organised, how humanity interacts with the environments and landscapes, and how ideas about the world are visible in the objects people have created.
To be able to understand the past in any depth, engagement with theoretical and ethical issues is needed. This means we explore issues such as heritage, representation, land use, technology, environmental change, death, conflict, beliefs and the evolution of the human body, mind and ideas to broaden and widen knowledge of how humanity has arrived at the position it is in now.
Grades are important; however, our offers are not solely based on academic results. We are interested in creative people that demonstrate a strong commitment to their chosen subject area, and therefore we welcome applications from individuals from a wide range of backgrounds.
To assess student suitability for their chosen course, we normally arrange interviews for all applicants at which your skills, achievements and life experience will be considered as well as your qualifications.
