Landscape and Heritage Archaeology

The specialisation Landscape and Heritage focuses on the significance of historical landscapes and materials in both later periods and the modern world. Both the cultural and the more science-based approach of landscape archaeology are present in the programme. The side of archaeological heritage focuses on the multifaceted meanings of archaeological remains in modern society. Processes of preservation and management, the role of archaeology in spatial planning, and its societal impact in Europe are some of the key-issues that are being addressed in this Master’s programme.
