 Archaeology of England in Prehistoric, Roman, and Medieval Times

Archaeology London W_16-17

Program Overview

Travel with Dr. James W. Jordan and Dr. Brian Bates to the United Kingdom for an archaeological journey that will trace the prehistoric, Roman and Medieval periods spanning more than 5,000 years.  The classroom for this fantastic learning experience will be such places as Stonehenge, West Kennet Long Barrow, Roman London, the City of York and the British Museum, among others.  Immerse yourself in the rich history of the United Kingdom as you stand inside of a 4,500 year-old burial tomb, study the Roman city of Londinium or walk the Medieval streets of Viking Jorvik (modern day York). This exciting archaeology course is open to all majors.
