The Archaeology department at York is now the second largest postgraduate teaching centre in the UK, offering an unrivalled diversity of courses. Our enthusiastic and friendly staff ensure that we are always topping lists of teaching quality and student satisfaction. York has a collegiate system, and most postgraduate students will join Wentworth College, which stands opposite BioArCh, our state of the art analytical laboratories within the Bioscience Complex on campus. The majority of the teaching is undertaken in the historic Kings Manor in the centre of York; originally the Abbot's House of St Mary's Abbey, it served the Tudors and Stuarts as a seat of government. The city, historically England's second city, has probably the largest per capita population of Archaeologists, Conservators and Heritage professionals anywhere in the world and is a remarkable place to live and study.
