The School of History and Archaeology at Cardiff is noted for its ‘research-led’ teaching. This means that the staff teaching on modules in archaeology are themselves active researchers who conduct excavation as well as library research and present their results to students.
Not only are results presented to students, but students themselves have the opportunity to take place in projects run by staff, these include not only excavations in Britain and abroad, but also post-excavation work examining artefacts, soil samples and environmental evidence from digs.
My particular research interests are in ancient Egypt and early technology, as well as in the history of archaeology and these are the areas in which I teach and undergraduate level and in which I supervise postgraduate students.
The modules I teach are described in the sections dealing with First Year (Part I) and years 2 and 3 (Honours) as well as masters and postgraduate. More information about the modules offered at Cardiff can be found on the Archaeology website and in our brochures. Brochures can be obtained from the archaeology secretary, Sarah Tovey on firstname.lastname@example.org
