What will I learn?

Archaeology is a dynamic worldwide discipline that draws on both the sciences and the humanities to interpret the physical evidence left by humans and their ancestors around the planet. Practitioners use information from geography, history, mathematics, biology, anthropology, chemistry and sociology to process evidence at sites to form the best interpretation about past human behaviour. Understanding past human behaviour informs our view of modern society and its challenges.

The Archaeology Major draws on both the sciences and the humanities to interpret the physical evidence left by humans and their ancestors around the planet. You will learn to use information from geography, history, mathematics, biology, anthropology, chemistry and sociology to process evidence at sites to form the best interpretation about past human behaviour.

Understanding past human behaviour informs our view of modern society and its challenges. The Major provides you with comprehensive training in archaeological methods and theory, filed survey and excavation, as well as Aboriginal and maritime archaeology, with a strong Western Australian and Australian focus.
