Landscape and Heritage (Archaeology)
Landscape and Heritage Archaeology
In the Master's programme Landscape and Heritage, the focus is on the significance of landscapes and materials from the past in later periods and in the modern world. Natural landscape features, archaeological sites and objects from the past play an active role in the creation of social and collective memories. Close links exist between the teaching and ongoing research, for example in the application of GIS-based modelling. Additionally, there are strong ties with archaeological institutions, such as the Allard Pierson Museum of the University of Amsterdam.
