Course description

The History Department offers AS Archaeology as an additional qualification. This is a one-year course is taught by Mr. Powell at Poole Grammar School between 4.00pm and 5.15pm every Tuesday evening.

Archaeology (2010) Archaeology 'the study of past human societies from the investigation of material remains' is one of the most exciting subjects in the curriculum. It is the ultimate subject for an 'all-round' student, in that it combines elements of many other academic disciplines, such as Science, Art, Technology, Geography, History, Sociology and Religious Studies.

The study of Archaeology challenges students to understand and use a range of evidence to draw substantiated conclusions and raises their awareness of the uncertainty of knowledge.

This four-unit specification requires students to develop their understanding of archaeological skills and methods, develop the skills of archaeological investigation, and organise and communicate their archaeological knowledge in a range of ways
