In the Master’s degree programme Archaeology of Northwestern Europe, you will investigate over 3,000 years of European archaeology and focus on the cultural dynamics of one of these two key European eras: Late Iron Age and Roman Period or the Medieval and Early Modern Period.
The programme offers you the rare opportunity to explore European archaeology through the study of landscapes, material culture and documentary sources, but also through integration processes in the Roman Empire. Close links exist between the teaching subjects and the results of current fieldwork and other research projects.
In this Master’s programme you can choose between two regional archaeological eras. The focus area Late Iron Age and Roman Period explores the integration of Celtic/Germanic societies of the Iron Age into the Roman Empire. The field of study Medieval and Early Modern Period focuses on the origins and developments of medieval trade and exchange, the growth of Amsterdam and the expansion of European capitalism with the colonisation of the New World.
This Master’s degree programme is offered by two universities. The University of Amsterdam and VU Amsterdam combined their expertise on the field of ancient history and archaeology in the Amsterdam Centre for Ancient Studies and Archaeology (ACASA). This merging of specialists from various academic disciplines creates a stimulating environment for collaboration and study.
