Funerary Archaeology

Past societies responded to and treated their dead in a huge diversity of ways, providing archaeologists with crucial insights into their workings. Funerary archaeology combines analysis of human remains with their archaeological context to take a truly interdisciplinary approach to studying both life and death in the past. The course at York offers the chance to develop skills in a range of different methods and techniques, but all centred on learning how to investigate death and burial in the past. The flexible nature of the course enables you to pursue your own particular period or methodological interests. This course may be taken as an MA, MSc, PG Dip or PG Cert.

Entry requirements

Mature students or those with less conventional qualifications but with relevant experience in this field will be considered.
