MSc in Archaeological Prospection – Shallow Geophysics

 

The course is a highly focused postgraduate degree programme which develops specialist skills in the theory and practice of archaeological prospection, in particular in near-surface geophysics.

It provides students with knowledge and experience of the principal geophysical and geochemical techniques currently available for the detection of buried archaeological features and other near-surface targets. It gives an appropriate background to materials and soil science, together with the relevant mathematical principles.

Other methods of detection such as remote sensing, topographical survey and field-walking are introduced as essential components of an integrated approach to landscape assessment. Sampling procedures and the computer treatment and display of field data from all methods are critically examined with the aid of case studies based on field experience. Skills and knowledge are developed through lectures, seminars, laboratory and fieldwork classes and a formal dissertation.... [-]

MSc in Archaeological Sciences

 

This course is designed to give graduates a systematic training in the application of modern scientific methods in archaeology. It provides the necessary practical, analytical and interpretative skills to apply a wide range of specialist approaches in archaeology.

 

It aims to prepare students not only for research in archaeological science, but also to further career prospects in all areas of mainstream archaeology.

 

Students normally follow one of three pathways.

 

Environmental Archaeology focuses on subsistence and health through studies of animal bones, plant remains and biomarkers in human and non-human hard tissue. It also introduces environmental issues which impact on human beings, including environmental change.... [-]

MSc / PG Diploma / PG Cert in Forensic Archaeology and Crime Scene Investigation

 

Forensic Archaeology is the specialist application of archaeological techniques to the search and recovery of evidential material from crime scenes, often but not always related to buried human remains. This course combines approaches from different disciplines to provide students with a comprehensive forensic skill set.It is essential that forensic archaeologists are able to appreciate their role within a wider police investigation and have a detailed understanding of crime scene management procedures.The discipline of Forensic Archaeology in the United Kingdom is defined by the Council for the Registration of Forensic Practitioners (CRFP); this course has been developed with specific CRFP criteria in mind.The course is underpinned by modules on Crime Scene Management and English Law delivered by West Yorkshire Police and Bradford School of Law....
