Enrolment for Year 1 BA Archaeology and Medieval History
Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26 September 2012
Welcome to the Cardiff School of History, Archaeology and Religion! These notes are intended as a general guide to the enrolment process. You will receive more detailed advice from your tutors when you come to Cardiff, but if you have problems understanding these instructions, please contact the Archaeology Administrator, Mrs Sarah Tovey, either by emailing ToveyS1@cardiff.ac.uk, by phoning (029) 2087 4259, or by calling into the School Office (room 4.54 in the Humanities Building).
You will be a member of both the Archaeology subject and the History subject, but for administrative procedures such as enrolment, your 'home' subject is Archaeology.

Structure of BA Archaeology and Medieval History Year 1
You must take modules to the value of 120 credits. Each Year 1 subject consists of 40 credits of modules, so you will take 40 credits in Archaeology Part IA, 40 credits in History, and another 40 in a third subject. Further information about the structure of the BA Archaeology and Medieval History degree.
For your third subject you can choose from any subject in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, but we recommend that you take Archaeology Part IB, which is a more specialised introduction to archaeological theory, methods and techniques, designed for all students taking degrees involving Archaeology. The modules involve a combination of lectures, laboratory classes and fieldtrips to study monuments and landscapes. No prior scientific knowledge is required.
If you do not wish to take Archaeology Part IB, the other subjects available are listed in the Humanities and Social Studies Year 1 Enrolment and Subject Guide. Note that you will have to check for timetable clashes, that some subjects have specific entrance requirements, and that some have restricted numbers of places. Archaeology Part IA is in Timetable Group F, and the History modules are in Timetable Groups B (HS1101, HS1105 and HS1107) and G (HS1104 and HS1106). You will not be able to take any other subject in the same group, as the classes will clash with classes in Archaeology or History. Your personal tutor will help you select a suitable subject.
