Department of Archaeology

We're looking forward to welcoming new and returning students, whether on campus, online or a mix of both in September 2020.

How we deliver our modules will depend on government guidance but we're preparing for different scenarios which will ensure our usual excellent standard of teaching in inclusive and accessible ways. We are committed to teaching in person at King's Manor or on the main University Campus West wherever possible, though also providing alternative teaching to those students who might not be able to get to York.

We're planning an engaging experience that's carefully designed to develop important skills as you explore the world of Archaeology with us. We'll continue to be a friendly community for students whether in person or online - our students always come first. We look forward to seeing you in September.

We're updating our Coronavirus webpages regularly with the latest information for prospective students and current students.

Researcher in focus

Katharina Dulias

Dr Katharina Dulias

My core research interests cover ecology and evolution. More specifically, as a biologist with a strong background in environmental and ancient DNA genomics, my research includes population genetics, impacts on the environment, and responses to environmental change. I am particularly interested in the use of ancient DNA to answer archaeological and ecological questions.
