Turn the past into your future

Why do burial mounds have such special names? Why is there no primeval forest left in the Netherlands? What makes a jar containing coins and peppercorns such a revolutionary discovery?

In the Bachelor’s Archaeology, you investigate the significance of archaeological artefacts and their impact on the present. You conduct research into the remains of all kinds of cultures, both in the classroom and in the field.
