University Archaeology UK represents the departments of Archaeology in UK universities

Archaeology provides a unique perspective on the human past, on what it is to be human. As the only subject that deals with the entire human past in all its temporal and spatial dimensions, it is fundamental to our understanding of how we evolved, how our societies came into being, and how they changed over time.

University Archaeology Day 

The 2019 University Archaeology Day will be held on Saturday 12 October at the British Museum.

The event is designed for prospective students, teachers and parents to learn about the many degree programmes on offer across the UK, to discover the huge range of career opportunities that an archaeology degree can lead to, and to hear about some of the latest archaeological research.

Most of the top archaeology departments will be represented in our display area, along with a range of organisations that promote the subject and employ archaeology graduates. There will also be a full programme of talks and activities covering application tips, careers advice, and a wide range of archaeological topics including some of the latest finds and cutting-edge research.
