    Course Summary

    Bishop Grosseteste University’s BA in Archaeology and History is a joint BA (Honours) degree which is perfect for anyone fascinated with the past and eager to either share that expertise with others or literally dig into the past to learn more about our collective ancestry and what their lives have left behind.

    You’ll learn about the grand story of the past, that of the British Isles, greater Europe and the entirety of the world. You’ll learn how to make sense of the narratives historians have left behind, and how to tease hard facts from these tales.

    Archaeology is something Lincoln knows well. Its earliest foundations go back some 2000 years, and you can explore the layers of the past right on your doorstep.

    In the same way, BGU is incredibly well placed to give students a perspective on UK history, having been a substantial human settlement well before England’s Roman period and throughout its turbulent Middle Ages, up until today.
