Our Introduction to Archaeology course examines what archaeology is, and what it is not. It is led and created by professional archaeologists to give a broad understanding of how archaeology is academically approached today and how it has developed since its beginnings as a discipline in the nineteenth century. As we look back on the past we need to understand our own views to work out how we are adding interpretations and what is a discernible fact.

This course is suited to anyone with an interest in archaeology and a desire to understand how we approach the remains of past human activity.

“The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there.” (Hartley, L.P., “The Go-Between”, 1953)

Archaeologists don’t dig dinosaurs, that would be a Paleontologist. Archaeology is the study of the stuff people leave behind them. Archaeologists use that to build a picture of life, technology, and landscape.
