About University of Sheffield,...
The Department of Archaeology is one of the largest departments of archaeology in the UK. Its research interests are extensive, and range from the Palaeolithic to the post-medieval.

Since its formation over 50 years ago, our department has played a leading role in the development of archaeology as a modern discipline.

The department offers a number of taught masters courses and the research degrees of MPhil and PhD
