Faculty of Human, Social, and Political Sciences


Archaeology is the study of the human past, in all its social and
cultural diversity. At Cambridge it is an outstandingly broad and
exciting subject, equally rewarding for those who feel at home in the
sciences, the humanities, or both.

Our undergraduate degree encompasses multiple tracks: Archaeology,
Biological Anthropology, Assyriology and Egyptology. You can specialise
in your chosen track already in Year 1, or combine them in Year 1 and
specialise from Year 2.
