Hey, I’m Alex and I study BA Archaeology at the University of York. I just want to have a chat about all the options a degree in archaeology can open up for you! I have thoroughly enjoyed my study so far at York and just wanted to share some of the reasons for this. In this blog post I will talk about my recent experience in excavating before and working within the discipline.

Here is my little blog and how taking opportunities provided by the department can lead to lasting memories, friends and work experience.
