Archaeology at the University of Reading

A friendly and energetic department with an international reputation in research and teaching.

We have our own modern building and as part of the School of Archaeology, Geography and Environmental Science, we have access to a wide range of excellent scientific facilities, laboratories and expertise. Our staff research interests focus on European and Mediterranean archaeology from early prehistory to the later medieval period, and on social archaeology, scientific archaeology and geoarchaeology.

Undergraduate and postgraduate courses are wide-ranging and include archaeological science, theory and practical experience of archaeology in the field through our training excavation at Silchester.
