Course topics
The AS Level is covered in two units.
  • Archaeology of Religion and Ritual.
  • Archaeological Skills and methods.
Teaching and Learning
Sessions will involve studying and discussing topics using a variety of sources eg textbooks, videos, sites and artefact evidence, pictorial resources and weekly point tests for self-evaluating progress.

You will be required to set aside approximately two hours a week for reading and answering questions or writing short essays. The field trips are carefully planned to reinforce theory in class sessions and teach you to examine sites, monuments and artefact evidence in museums. These trips are fun social events as well as serious learning days, and you may bring a friend or relative or older children.
