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.
Ranging from artefacts to grains of cereal, monuments to fortifications, and from tombs of the dead to houses of the living, the study of archaeology at ICE offers a wide exposure to some of the latest ideas in the discipline. At ICE we offer a broad range of archaeology courses, for newcomers to the subject and for those who have studied archaeology before.
We also offer a select number of courses in anthropology, which involve the study of human society, culture and behaviour in the present. Anthropologists today study both distant communities and our own society.
