Department of Archaeology and Ancient History

Come study with us!

Our competence within Scandinavian archaeology, Classical archaeology and culture, Global archaeology, Global Environmental History and Egyptology makes us into a treasure cave for students interested in prehistory and culture.

We offer courses on two campuses - in Uppsala and in Visby, Gotland.
