About the Department

University of AberdeenEstablished in 2007, we are one of the UK's youngest archaeology departments, located in one of Europe's oldest universities. As befits the 'Global University of the North', archaeology at Aberdeen has a special high-latitude focus that is found nowhere else.

Reflecting this, our staff are prominent researchers and fieldworkers in Northern Europe, Scandinavia, the North Atlantic, Mongolia and the circumpolar region from Siberia to the Canadian arctic. Closer to home, the archaeology of Scotland is a natural priority.

Spanning the humanities and physical sciences, our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes offer a complete archaeological education with a distinctive northern flavour.
