Our department is the one of the leading centres for archaeological teaching in the UK. York is the country's archaeological capital, with historic buildings and significant remains from the Roman, Viking and Medieval periods. The department has a strong international outlook, researching archaeology around the globe, and all teaching is reseach-led, fitting within one of our six research themes.
The Department is based in King’s Manor, a beautiful medieval building in the centre of York. We also have fantastic facilities on the main University campus: world-leading Bioarchaeology facilities; our Palaeohub with state-of-the-art labs; and our outdoor Experimental Archaeology centre.
