The global pandemic is certainly posing challenges for everyone but here in Archaeology we are committed to ensuring an excellent teaching experience for all our students. How we deliver our modules depends on government guidance and we've worked hard to ensure our usual high standard of teaching is delivered 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, while also providing alternative teaching to those students who might not be able to get to York.
We've created 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're updating our Coronavirus webpages regularly with the latest information for staff and current students.

Lindsey’s research focuses on the intersection of ritual and domestic life in later prehistoric Britain and Europe. With interests in the ritualisation of the domestic sphere, non-normative funerary practices and the application of contemporary social theory to past societies, Lindsey’s current role as research lead for funerary archaeology on the COMMIOS Project explores what mortuary practices can tell us about social identity in Iron Age Britain and the Near Continent.
