If you are taking BA or BSc Archaeology, you will take 40 credits in Archaeology A, 40 credits in Archaeology B, and 40 credits in a third subject. For your third subject you can choose any of the subjects listed in the Humanities and Social Studies Year 1 Enrolment and Subject Guide<.

Archaeology A is in Timetable Group F, and Archaology B is in Timetable Group H. You will not be able to take any other subject in the same group, as the classes will clash with classes in Archaeology. Your personal tutor will help you to select a suitable subject.
