The Department of Archaeology works closely with partners locally, nationally and across the world. We make the most of our location in the city of York, a fantastic place for archaeology. Staff and students benefit from collaborations with commercial, heritage, and industry partners across the city. We are also connected to a network of partners via our alumni, who have taken up roles in archaeology, heritage and museums across the globe.

Types of collaboration
Undergraduate and postgraduate students can participate in ongoing projects and placements across the city; staff and PhD researchers collaborate on research and consultancy projects. We are always keen to work with external partners and to explore new types of collaboration so please do contact us with any bright ideas.
Case study: Museum Gardens
Since 2018 we have been working in collaboration with Yorkshire Museum to survey the grounds of the Museum Gardens in the centre of York using geophysical and landscape survey techniques. The site is a focus for undergraduate practical teaching and allows the students an opportunity to work independently to collect, process, and interpret archaeological data.
This work is contributing towards a larger survey of the grounds to help inform their management by investigating the nature of the sub-surface remains. Students have also presented this work publicly as part of the Roman Festival held annually in the grounds.
