Department of Archaeology
Archaeology provides a vivid understanding of how the past informs our present through its focus on the material remains of the human past.
We are one of Australia's leading and most dynamic Departments of Archaeology. Our nine full-time staff offer a highly diverse programme of undergraduate teaching, postgraduate coursework and postgraduate research opportunities spanning many areas of archaeological inquiry and practice. The research funding success of staff projects and our global connections are reflected in the broad scope of our international fieldwork programmes across Australasia, Asia and Europe. An active community of professionals and interested members of the public in Sydney, along with frequent visitors from overseas, contribute to a lively programme of activities.
Archaeology has been taught at the University of Sydney in various forms since the early 1930s. The Department of Archaeology is part of the School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry (SOPHI) within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
