The minor in Archaeology, offered through the Greek and Roman Studies program in the College of the Humanities, is designed to allow students from any discipline to pursue a wide variety of approaches to the field of archaeology. The areas of focus are not limited to Greece and Rome. Students in existing field work courses offered by our department have already excavated at sites in the Ottawa area, on Baffin Island, and in Spain, Italy, Greece, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Russia, Israel and Jordan.
Students in the minor will be exposed to the use of digital media and new technology in archaeology for imaging artifacts and structures, data management, drawing, restoration, reconstruction, and analysis of finds. Our location in Ottawa allows for collaboration between the minor in Archaeology and the city’s many museums, academic associations and international embassies.
