Serious research in many areas of
archaeology requires an ability to read scholarship in languages other
than English. Original fieldwork in some parts of the world may also
require competence in relevant local languages. Graduate students in
archaeology are therefore encouraged to attend the language courses put
on by the University's Language Centre and to make use of the other
facilities that it provides in order to acquire the relevant language
skills. Courses in German for archaeologists are available from time to
time in the Institute of Archaeology, and it may also be possible to
make arrangements to acquire some knowledge of relevant ancient
languages, for example by including a course as a special topic within
a MSt or MPhil.
