Archaeology and Prehistory

Temple of hercules in Rome


This area of focus is concerned with the nature and scope of archaeology and prehistory; the variety of archaeological evidence in time and space. We are also concerned with data collection and analysis in regard to the social organization, subsistence and diet as well as political organization, religion and ritual. We also conduct original research in art and symbolism together with environmental reconstruction in regard to intangible aspects. Students and researcher are offered an opportunity to examine and analyse the approaches to managing the past spatial frameworks and behaviour, synthesis and interpretation of archaeology and the public.
