Department of Archaeology

Welcome to the Durham University Archaeology Department, one of the largest of its kind in the world. Fourth for our subject in both the Times Good University Guide 2013 and the Complete University Guide 2013, such high rankings are a testament to the research-led community we have built and the expertise we share with our valued students. Judged best in the UK for Archaeology research following the Research Assessment Exercise of 2008, many of our academics have literally 'written the book' on their subject and are the editors of prominent archaeological journals. As a result, we can offer you high quality teaching, a positive student experience, and crucially, enhanced employability.
