    Programme Description

    This interdisciplinary MA, unique in the UK, combines theory and practice to develop understandings of the challenges in developing archaeological concepts in media contexts. Students work in both the Archaeology and Anthropology Department and the Drama Department. An integral part of the programme is a placement with a Time Team production shoot.

    The programme enables you to acquire archaeological research skills, and to examine how archaeology has been presented on television and related media, and through heritage centres and museums. You will also acquire media production skills, with the emphasis on creative thought and practice. Strands within the course address programme research methods, script development and production, and the potential of post-production. Each unit integrates an understanding of professional practice with critical reflection.

    Presentations, written work and practice-based assessments provide a progressive evaluation of your abilities in archaeological research methods and in media skills. The emphasis is on individual/group project work, which may involve written output, audio-visual submissions or a combination of both. The placement is assessed through tutorial supervisions, pro-forma mentor's report and a student evaluation.
