This module examines the historical archaeology of Europe from about AD 400 to AD 1200, but makes reference back to the Roman period which has an abiding influence throughout the Middle Ages. It spans the whole of Europe from Ireland and southern Spain to Ukraine and Russia.
The module is delivered through a series of two one-hour lectures per week and tutorial sessions. The module also features a field trip to Carrickfergus Castle. Assessment for this module is divided between a class test, written essay, and a grade based on tutorial attendance.
