Fieldwork is an essential part of archaeological and historical research in our department. We offer many exciting and diverse research opportunities where department members can get involved in a range of archaeological projects. These opportunities allow students to access first-hand the ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern civilizations and discover the rich cultural history they possess. The Centre for the Study of Ancient Sicily, for example, aims to conduct and publish world-class research on Sicily, providing undergraduate and graduate students the extraordinary opportunity to study the largest island in the Mediterranean. The Kalavasos and Maroni Built Environment Project offers students opportunities to engage with cutting-edge digital technologies and excavation methods as they investigate the relationship between social interaction and Late Bronze Age urban landscapes on the island of Cyprus. Our archaeology courses also help develop critical thinking and problem solving skills by placing emphasis on fieldwork, archaeological theory and practice, as well as discussion of relevant social and historical processes.
