When it comes to studying Archaeology at university, there are loads of courses and choices available. But when you’re looking for the perfect place to call home for the next 3 years of your life, there’s only one place that stands out.
Here’s why third year Archaeology student Daisy thinks Newcastle is the best home for an Archaeology student.
We live on the doorstep of Hadrian’s Wall, with a direct bus route to a number of Roman forts including Vindolanda and Housesteads.
We have the Great North Museum on campus, where artefact handling seminars take place…
…It’s also where we host our annual Christmas party, Night at the Museum.
Beautiful beaches are only a 20 minute Metro ride away, meaning trips to Tynemouth Priory, the aquarium and mini golf are great weekend activities.
Newcastle has its very own castle, right in the centre of town…
And climbing to the top provides some amazing views.
We have a vibrant nightlife and a close-knit archaeology society which runs regular socials – great for all those post-essay celebrations!
There are loads of opportunities for getting involved with University-led excavations in the UK…
We also get the chance to travel abroad for adventures in places like Sicily, Greece or Rome.
Which is why I think Newcastle is the best home for an Archaeology student.
