During the first year of an undergraduate degree (Level 1), students are able to choose from a range of foundation modules.

Through these, students learn how to summarise and communicate information through different media (e.g. through essay writing, presentations, posters). They are introduced to the main debates in Archaeology and Palaeoecology, and the principles behind many of the methods used in these disciplines. Modules also contain practical, hands-on experience in data collection and opportunities for introductory field excursions. For further details, see the Module Guides and Transferable Skills tab linked to individual modules on this site.
