ARP 3056 – Archaeology/Palaeoecology Dissertation

Module Overview

This module comprises the final-year dissertation which students undertake under one-on-one supervision by an academic member of staff, based on a personal project. This project may be fieldwork-, laboratory-, museum- or library-based (or a combination of these). It is normally developed from a research design prepared as part of module ARP2043. Data collection for the project is carried out over the summer vacation, with data analysis conducted over the autumn semester and writing-up for submission undertaken during the spring semester of Stage 3.

Learning outcomes

You will gain practical experience in undertaking independent research on a topic of your choice as well as training in the application of archaeological and/or palaeoecological techniques required to implement your research programme.
