Archaeology at The Sixth Form College Colchester

Course description

Are you interested in the past and want to find out about past civilisations like Ancient Egypt and the Roman Empire? Do you wonder about how the dead were disposed of in Ancient Britain and how they confronted their fear of death? Have you ever thought about why Stonehenge was built? In Archaeology we aim to recreate the past through a study of material remains. It is the perfect subject to bridge humanitities and science with a strong emphasis on examining the techniques archaeologists use today to explore the past. 

Entry requirements

No previous study is required but a strong interest in historical and archaeological matters, a willingness to undertake research and practical work, and good written skills are important. 

A minimum grade C (or 4) in GCSE English Languag is required, as well as a grade B (or 5) or above in at least one predominantly written based GCSE subject (from English, English Language, English Literture, History, Religious Studies or Sociology.)
