Department of Archaeology

The Chair of Archaeology of the University of Tartu offers higher education in archaeology. Future archaeologists will obtain their fundamental preparation here and students of other specialities may also obtain basics in archaeology. Preparation embodies both ancient and mediaeval times, focusing on archaeology of Estonia and Baltic Sea areas. Different survey courses deal also with more distant areas. Several elective courses allow obtaining additional knowledge from areas of contact with other sciences. In addition to lecture courses, practical archaeological excavations take place every summer.
