Is your FUTURE in the PAST? Find out what it's like to study archaeology at university at the inaugural University Archaeology Day on Thursday, 22 June in London. Over 25 departments from across the UK will be there. For further details, check out the University Archaeology Day website here:

The event is designed for prospective students, teachers and parents to learn about the many degree programmes on offer across the UK, to discover the huge range of career opportunities that an archaeology degree can lead to, and to hear about some of the latest archaeological research. Many of the top archaeology departments will be represented in our display area, along with a range of organisations that promote the subject and employ archaeology graduates. There will also be a full programme of talks and activities covering application tips, careers advice, and a wide range of archaeological topics including some of the latest finds and cutting-edge research.


Thursday, 29 June: London Anthropology Day
The event is held at the British Museum. Participants get to learn what anthropology is about, the types of careers anthropologists do, and gain hands-on experience of what it is like to study the subject at university. Lecturers from universities across Britain provide interactive workshops on biological and social anthropology. Students are able to learn about the various specialisations of participating universities, explore the museum’s ethnographic galleries and interact with volunteers who are currently studying anthropology.
