ARCHAEOLOGY PhD/MLitt (Research)/MPhil (Research)/MRes

 

Archaeology at Glasgow has an active postgraduate community, carrying out research on a wide range of topics from the Mesolithic to the present day and from Northern Scandinavia to the Eastern Mediterranean.

OVERVIEW

Our key strengths are:

  • Scottish archaeology, particularly in the Mesolithic and Neolithic periods and the Celtic, Pictish and Viking areas
  • Mediterranean archaeology, from Spain to Turkey, from Bronze Age mining to postcolonial studies
  • historical archaeology, from the classical period to the 20th century
  • the use of aerial photographic and satellite imagery for the understanding of landscape history through aerial archaeology
  • battlefield and conflict archaeology

Postgraduate community

The postgraduates in Archaeology at Glasgow enjoy one of the university’s most supportive, collaborative and friendly communities on campus. Intellectually, it’s a very generous group, with lots of opportunities on offer to MLitt and PhD students to get involved in existing projects or start new ones together, whether in the field or the classroom, or through conferences and publications.

The best example of this is our own publication Love Archaeology Magazine, where there are ample chances for authors, researchers, editors, photographers and creative types to get involved.
