Archaeology is the study of past human societies from the investigation of material remains. Archaeology isn’t just digging for spectacular treasures and other valuable finds, which is supported in the media by images of Indiana Jones and Lara Croft. Archaeology is more a serious academic subject and stands people in good stead to go on to study a range of degrees at university. The course covers aspects of history, Earth science (geology), geography, sociology, anthropology and classical civilisation. It concerns itself with the physical remains of human activity including: human remains, settlements, the organisation of societies and uses techniques such as interpretation of aerial photographs, geographical survey, excavation, dating methods and analysis. Students have the opportunity to plan and develop their coursework in Year 13.
