Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


About our courses

Archaeology is the study of the past through the traces or material remains which survive into the present. Studying with Cambridge 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.
