World Archaeology (TRUR3103)
World Archaeology will give the detailed analytical knowledge of a range of international developments in Archaeology. This is a student-led module. The lecturer introduces the broad themes and gives guidance, but it is the students who actually research and present the specific topics to their fellow students.
Experimental Archaeology and Event Management (TRUR3104)
Students will learn to present material to different types of public audience. They will develop an understanding of audience so as to present the material in a way that is understandable and enjoyable for those audiences, whilst retaining the essence and integrity of the material. They will also learn how their statements may be liable to misinterpretation or manipulation.
Current Debates in Archaeology (TRUR3105)
Students will examine the current debates and philosophies behind today’s archaeology. They will also critically examine the literature in other disciplines that have influenced archaeology. They will learn how archaeology is part of a much wider academic discussion, and a much wider academic community.

Students will critically evaluate laboratory and field techniques of Environmental and Conservation Archaeology. This module will examine the principles and practices of Environmental and Conservation Archaeology, current issues and debates within the field, and investigate the interrelationship between them.
This module will build upon the experiences of Foundation Degree projects. Students will research themes, topics or sites from a more critically analytical perspective. Students will examine appropriate philosophical and theoretical themes in relevant research areas.
