Archaeology and Conservation

The depth of our research strength is reflected in our range of Archaeology and Conservation master's programmes.


Our postgraduate taught programmes encompass a broad range of periods and subjects. The modules available within these programmes reflect our research specialisms in Archaeological Science, Prehistoric Britain and Europe, Early Medieval Society and Culture, and Classical archaeology.

Our programmes offer you the opportunity to enhance and develop both your archaeological and academic skills.

Archaeology students can apply to the Cyril Fox Memorial Fund for travel and research grants.


With an international reputation for its teaching and research, Conservation at Cardiff offers you a hands-on, practical approach under the careful supervision of leading experts in the field.

As part of your studies, your practical work in our fully equipped suite of laboratories will not only fully develop your range of skills, but also make a lasting difference to the future of precious objects from a range of historic collections.

You will join a tight-knit community, becoming part of a wider group of alumni working in the heritage sector across the globe.

PhD and MPhil research degrees are also open for those wishing to further specialise or pursue a career in academia.
