Department of Archaeology

Archaeology at Memorial

Archaeologists and bioarchaeologists study past human cultures and behaviour through the material left behind: artifacts and features, plant and animal remains, human remains, sediments, sites, and their associated landscapes.

In the Department of Archaeology, our students engage in practical training and experiential learning in classroom, laboratory and fieldwork settings that provide a comprehensive education and transferable skills. State of the art laboratories specializing in applied archaeological sciences, archaeobotany, archaeological conservation, and prehistoric, historical and Indigenous archaeology integrate students into community-university research initiatives from Northern Labrador to French Guiana and from British Columbia to Northwest Europe.

As one of the largest Archaeology departments in the country, we train our students to become effective researchers, critical thinkers, and active stewards for our shared archaeological heritage.
