Archaeology and Anthropology at ICE

Archaeology is the study of the past through the traces or material remains which survive into the present. Studying with ICE will help you develop your own archaeological expertise through the analysis of religious and ritual beliefs, death and daily life of past peoples by examining what they left behind.

We offer a broad range of short and part-time archaeology courses, for newcomers to the subject and for those who have studied archaeology before. We also offer a select number of short courses in anthropology, which involve the study of human society, culture and behaviour in the present.
