Two Schools become one

Cardiff School of History and Archaeology and the School of Religious and Theological Studies became Cardiff School of History, Archaeology and Religion on 1 August 2010.

The School is home to four Departments:

  • Ancient History
  • Archaeology & Conservation
  • History & Welsh History
  • Religious Studies & Theology

It brings together 60 academic staff and around 800 undergraduates and 200 postgraduates in a lively teaching and research hub, exploring disciplines anew and rekindling the synergies between these important subjects.

Its highly regarded research continues in more than thirty projects stretching across the British Isles, Europe and into Asia.

Share with us at a range of events over the next months

You can get involved at more than one hundred free public talks and lectures every year, plus participatory events. 

We hope to see you at events at St Fagans National History Museum just outside Cardiff, the National Museum of Wales in the capital or at The National Eisteddfod of Wales, as well as at the University and in local communities. 

Or explore archaeology in action at free tours of the excavation at Caerleon in South Wales, one of many research projects this summer in the UK and beyond. Check out our news and events pages to find out more.

Your feedback on our new website is welcome too.

Enjoy your visit. We hope to see you soon.
