Trosolwg y cwrs

Archaeoleg yw'r astudiaeth o olion cymdeithasau'r gorffennol, o'r gwrthrychau bach a wisgir ar y corff i gyfadeiladau anferth fel Côr y Cewri. Gan gymysgu'r gwyddorau a'r dyniaethau, bydd archaeoleg yn eich arfogi i ddeall yn well beth yw bod yn ddynol. Dyma ' r unig ddisgyblaeth sy'n eich galluogi i astudio dynoliaeth o ' r hominidiaid cynharaf 5 miliwn o flynyddoedd yn ôl hyd heddiw.

A ninnau’n un o arloeswyr y ddisgyblaeth yn y DU, rydym yn dathlu 100 mlynedd o Archaeoleg a Chadwraeth yn 2020. Heddiw, mae ein harbenigwyr yn dod â darganfyddiadau newydd a'r syniadau diweddaraf i mewn i addysgu bob dydd, gan arbenigo yn nwyrain y Canoldir, yr Aifft, Ewrop ac Ynysoedd Prydain.

Bydd ein gradd yn eich cyflwyno i'r ystod o dystiolaeth a astudiwyd gan archaeolegwyr; o dirweddau, adeiladau a henebion i weddillion bwyd a gwrthrychau bob dydd.

Byddwch yn datblygu'r sgiliau penodol sydd eu hangen i astudio'r dystiolaeth amrywiol hon ynghyd â gwybodaeth eang am eu cyd-destun ehangach.

Yn arbennig o ddeniadol yw ein ffocws ar ddatblygu sgiliau ymarferol, yn y maes ac yn y labordy. Byddwch yn profi gwaith maes archeolegol a ariennir yn llawn trwy ein rhaglen a gymeradwyir. Mae’r lleoliadau cofiadwy hyn yn digwydd gartref yn y DU a thramor, yn ystod yr hafau fel arfer yn dilyn Blwyddyn Un a Blwyddyn Dau.

Mae ein myfyrwyr Archaeoleg yn symud ymlaen i ystod o yrfaoedd, gyda graddedigion diweddar yn dewis gweithio o fewn y sector treftadaeth (e.e. i gontractwyr archeolegol, amgueddfeydd a chyrff treftadaeth) neu mewn sectorau lefel graddedigion yn amrywio o addysgu i fyd teledu. Mae astudio archaeoleg yn ffordd ardderchog o ddatblygu ystod o sgiliau a werthfawrogir gan gyflogwyr, er enghraifft trwy ddatblygu sgiliau gwaith tîm ac arweinyddiaeth yn y maes a dysgu sut i gyfleu straeon cymhleth am y gorffennol i ystod o gynulleidfaoedd.

Blwyddyn un

You will study 120 credits in Year One, taking 80 credits of modules in Archaeology and 40 credits from another subject in the School of History, Archaeology and Religion or from participating academic schools in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Science.

The Archaeology modules aim to introduce the techniques and approaches that archaeologists employ, as well as the archaeology of specific societies. 

The Year Two fieldwork project is taken in the summer at the end of the first year, although it is credited to the autumn semester of Year Two. This project is taught through four-weeks of student participation on archaeological excavations, field-surveys, museum curatorial projects or other post-excavation, laboratory-based activities.

Part-time students will normally complete this period of study over two years, taking modules worth 60 credits per year.

Years Two and Three are taught together as ‘Part Two’ and modules are offered on alternate years. Over the two years, you must complete 240 credits of modules of which 70 credits consist of core requirements and 130 credits come from a wide range of period, topic, or technique-specific modules within Archaeology and Ancient History, allowing you a great deal of flexibility to follow the subjects you are most interested in. You may also take up to 40 credits from another Academic School (subject to approval by the Board of Studies). 

In Year Two, you will take the Archaeological Independent Study module and in the Year Three you have the option of taking the Archaeology Dissertation module. In both these modules you have the chance to follow your own special interests. 

The Year Three fieldwork project is taken in the summer at the end of the second year, although it is credited to the Autumn Semester of Year Three.  This project is taught through four-weeks of student participation on archaeological excavations, field-surveys, museum curatorial projects or other post-excavation, laboratory-based activities.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut caf fy addysgu?

 

The School of History, Archaeology and Religion enables you to develop in a high-quality learning environment, supported by a student-orientated approach to the acquisition of knowledge and skills.

Teaching methods include lectures, seminars, practicals, field trips, and one-to-one tutorials. You will also undertake independent study and research, with guidance from tutors.

Lectures provide an overview of the key concepts and frameworks for a topic, equipping you to carry out independent research for the seminars and to develop your own ideas. Seminars provide an opportunity for you to explore the ideas outlined in the lecture in a small group environment.

Seminars usually consist of about 15 students and the seminar leader (a member of the teaching team). Seminars may take various formats, including plenary group discussion, small group work and student-led presentations. They offer a rewarding opportunity to engage critically with the key ideas and reading of a topic, and to explore areas of particular interest with an expert in the field.

Archaeological skills are promoted through a range of designed practicals and direct participation on fieldwork projects, including excavation, surveys, post-excavation programmes and curatorial projects in museums.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

All modules make extensive use of Cardiff University’s Virtual Learning Environment, Learning Central, where you can access course materials and links to related reading and online resources. In addition to the main University libraries, you will have access to the Sheila White Library, which contains additional copies of books on Greek and Roman history and culture.

You will be assigned a Personal Tutor, who is able to advise you on academic and pastoral matters in a confidential and informal manner. Personal Tutors meet with you regularly to discuss progress and provide advice and guidance, and are available for consultation at other times as needed. Opportunities for you to reflect on your abilities and performance are made available through a structured programme of Personal Development Planning and through scheduled meetings with Personal Tutors.

Sut caf fy asesu?

Intellectual skills are assessed summatively through written coursework, unseen examinations, class/laboratory tests and oral presentations. Practical archaeological skills are assessed summatively through written coursework, class tests and fieldwork reports. Formative assessment is provided during seminars, coursework and during fieldwork placements.

Assessment of transferable skills is through coursework, independent study and dissertation modules, presentations and written examinations. Teamwork is assessed in fieldwork and through collaborative projects such as site visits and study tours.

Formative feedback is provided during seminars, essay tutorials, laboratories and fieldwork placements. Feedback is also provided via written work proformas and exam mark returns.

Pa sgiliau bydda i’n eu hymarfer a’u datblygu?

Archaeology combines practical and research skills and encourages students to develop a range of discipline-specific skills that employer’s value. Students learn to assess critically a body of knowledge, to develop hypotheses, test them against qualitative and quantitative evidence, and present conclusions both in writing and orally. They learn to work both independently and as part of a team.

Transferable Skills

  • Generation of coherent strategies and propositions in response to complex situations.
  • Structuring and writing reports of appropriate length on set questions and research topics.
  • Effective communication of ideas and arguments in oral and written presentations.
  • Organised and efficient working practices – individually as well as in a team.
  • Utilisation of information from a variety of resources, including libraries and the internet.
  • Employment of Information Technology e.g. spatial technologies (including GIS), visualization, data management, archaeological prospecting, modelling, social media, digital film and audio.
  • Rigorous and professional practices: able to take initiatives and accept significant responsibility within organisations.
  • Evidence based critical thinking.

Students can enhance their communications skills by working with schools, museums, businesses and community groups as part of our innovative public engagement activities. 

Gyrfaoedd a lleoliadau gwaith

Rhagolygon gyrfa

In 2013/14, 92% of the School's graduates who were available for work reported they were in employment and/or further study within six months of graduation.

An archaeology degree represents a challenging, interesting and exciting way to prepare for the future. 

In your archaeology course you will work as part of a team in the field and in the laboratory; you will research ideas, form opinions and present them in your own terms; you will develop your writing to address a range of audiences; you will use a range of software programmes and develop a wide range of practical skills. These transferable skills will be of benefit in your future career.

Our graduates have found work in journalism, banking, finance, teaching and a wide range of other areas. We organise interactive workshops with the Careers Service to help students identify their skills and attributes and the School has our own in-house Workplace Partnerships and Employability Officer. Many of our graduates enter professions which make direct use of their academic expertise but the majority compete very successfully in a wide range of other fields.

Lleoliadau

We offer workplace experience to our students through our four-week, funded excavation, museum and heritage work placements at the end of the first and second year.

You are also encouraged and financially supported to attend fieldwork placements abroad.

Archaeology students are also encouraged to take advantage of the Cardiff Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (CUROP) which provides summer placements for undergraduates in the University research environment. CUROP offers a stipend to support a student on a placement of up to eight weeks duration, working with supervision on staff-defined research projects.

There are also opportunities to work with heritage industry professionals (e.g. Cadw) as part of fieldwork placements or the Heritage Communication module and to gain further experience in working with the public of all ages via a range of initiatives (e.g. the Guerilla Archaeology outreach group, the CAER heritage project and the Share with Schools scheme). Finally, there are weekly research seminars with international guest speakers, a student Archaeology Society and a range of other events (e.g. conferences, Bushcraft weekends).
 

Gwaith maes

The Years Two and Three fieldwork projects are taken in the summer preceding those academic years. The Fieldwork projects are taught through four weeks of student participation on archaeological excavations, field-surveys, museum curatorial projects or other post-excavation, laboratory-based activities.
