The innovative two-year Research Master's in Archaeology and Heritage explores the ways in which we deal with tangible and intangible remnants of the past, and how we construct history in the present. The programme trains you to think critically about how human societies have dealt with the past in pre-modern times, as well as the diverse and conflicting ways in which the past is interpreted and put to use in the world today. Whether you choose to specialise in Heritage and Memory Studies, or in Archaeology, this innovative programme offers a unique combination of scientific traditions, and will give you a strong theoretical foundation in the fields of Heritage Studies, Memory Studies, and Archaeology, and their intersections.
