Why study Archaeology and History? Because these subjects help us to understand that our past is inextricably linked to our present and our future. They are about reinterpreting our identity. Knowledge of the past is of central significance to understanding many aspects of modern life – international relations, politics, social conditions, ethnicity, the economy, media and culture. As television programmes and newspaper articles on archaeology and history saturate our media, there has never been a more stimulating time to take up the study of these subjects. We offer an exciting and diverse programme which ranges from Ancient Egyptian society to the fall of the Berlin Wall. This year, we have introduced a number of innovative new courses including History, Ideology and the Russian Revolution of 1917 together with a number of exciting online courses. We have also established two new 60 credit Level 2 diploma blocks in Medieval Studies and Regional Studies. Also remember that our Level 1 Archaeology and History courses can be used to gain credits towards a Foundation Certificate or a Certificate of Higher Education. Both of these awards can enable you to progress onto a full-time or parttime degree scheme. Pam astudio Archaeoleg a Hanes?

Practical Archaeology: Research Projects
The Centre conducts a number of archaeology research projects for which it seeks assistance. These are not taught courses (although some informal tuition is included) and, therefore, only an administrative charge is made for participation. All current courses involve Roman and/or later artefacts, mainly pottery. The projects provide an opportunity to handle archaeological finds and to learn about them while assisting with ongoing research. Further information on these projects and some results are to be found on our website www.cardiff.ac.uk/learn/archaeol Participation in the Cardiff Samian Group requires some prior knowledge of samian and can form part of a Certificate of Advanced Study in Roman samian ware. However, all of the other projects require only enthusiasm rather than prior knowledge. Come and learn about the ancient world by handling its products.
