The MA Archaeology of Death and Memory has run successfully now for 5 years and we are now in the 6th year of teaching. I’ve occasionally posted on here about some of our field visits, but behind the scenes, the students and I are busy each year exploring the archaeology of death and commemorative practices from prehistory to the present.

The course can be taken full-time or part-time and allows you to develop postgraduate skills and conduct research on a wide-range of different periods and places, focusing on mortuary archaeology and archaeologies of memory.

Now there is a video to explain it all to you. It was filmed in the Roman stones gallery at the Grosvenor Museum, Chester, in September 2017. I hope you enjoy it!
