St John's College is hosting a 4-day residential Archaeology summer school from the 25-28 July for current Year 12 students. This will be an exciting opportunity to discover both the academic and practical basis of Archaeology as a University subject at Cambridge. It will include sample lectures and tutorials, workshops, and excavation. Topics will reflect the breadth of the Cambridge Archaeology degree, which also offers tracks in Egyptology, Assyriology, and Biological Anthropology.
As a subject which uniquely spans the Arts and the Sciences, Archaeology is suitable for students with a broad range of A level subjects. Participants are not required to be doing Archaeology A level, and the content of the summer school will presume no previous knowledge. There will also be guidance on admissions and interviews.
The summer school is absolutely free to attend. Further details are available on the St John's website. The deadline for applications is 15 June.
