Landscape and Heritage (Archaeology)

In the one-year Master's programme Landscape and Heritage you will study the dynamic past of both contemporary and historical landscapes, and explore the ways in which they are preserved and maintained as archaeological heritage.


Landscape and Heritage Archaeology

The Master’s programme Landscape and Heritage focuses on the significance of historical landscapes and materials in both later periods and 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. The programme draws close links between teaching and ongoing research, of which the application of GIS-based modelling is but one example. The programme has also forged strong ties with a number of archaeological institutions, such as the Allard Pierson.
