You study heritage and Archaeology of the far Northern hemisphere such as Scotland, North Atlantic, Scandinavia, Baltic Europe, Northern Russia and Siberia, and North Pacific North America. There are lots of local heritage sites and archaeological sites to be involved in either within your studies or free time plus you are a ferry ride from Orkney and Shetland with some of the most well known and major finds in the archaeological world on these islands.
At Aberdeen you can enjoy studying specific archaeology of the Northern Hemisphere from Northern Europe to Siberia to the Canadian Arctic. The range of courses available to you means that you can tie your archaeology together or if you prefer to get a range of courses across Geographic Information Systems, Cartography, Museums and specific tribal influences such as Viking and Norse the university offers a very similar programme to widen your skills and experience. You may be studying for a professional qualification or you may have interests in Archaeology which you wish to explore. This programme allows you to study for the full MSc or some courses towards an ISS qualification.
Whilst studying you can get involved with sites in Alaska alongside academics or explore those sites close at hand yourself. Within Moray you go on a field trip to the Pictish settlements and you can travel further to Portmahomack which holds a museum in Highland region.
In recent years Archaeology has become very well recognised on the television with Time Team and programmes about Orkney, Pompeii, hidden cities in Italy and many more. As a discipline it pieces together our hidden and sometimes lost past, helps us understand history, migration, our ancestry and it also helps us to understand just how sophisticated many previous civilisations were and the constant struggle for survival and cultural creation. There are a great many famous international sites which are often world heritage status which bring our past to tourists but the real interest lies in finding items and piecing together settlements, harbours, and how people lived on actual sites. We can then take all of this knowledge to help us understand how far reaching ancient civilisations were. Archaeology is a fascinating subject area and there are a wealth of very important sites within this region of Scotland to really enjoy whilst you are studying.
