This two-year programme aims to introduce students to the discipline of archaeology, its historical development, theoretical perspectives and methodologies. We present the archaeology of Ireland as a way of understanding ten thousand years of human settlement on this island.

There are a number of field-trips in both years of the programme, with attendance on two each year compulsory. These excursions will be thematic in content, to directly complement the taught modules. There are three courses each year and each course has a credit weighting of 5 ECTS.
