Archaeology is a dynamic world-wide discipline which draws on both the sciences and humanities to interpret material remains of the human past. This unit introduces key aspects of archaeological method and theory and explores links between archaeological practice and heritage issues of wide public interest based on archaeological case studies. It provides an essential introduction for senior units of study in Archaeology and will also interest anyone with a more general interest in this fascinating and topical field of study.
