Archaeology at Aberdeen builds on the existing strengths within the University in Geography and Anthropology in particular, focusing on Archaeology within northern Scotland, northern Europe, the USA and Siberia. This approach is unique within the United Kingdom - it draws on the diverse archaeological resources within the region, and research activities ongoing within the University. Aberdeen is at the heart of a region that is amongst the richest in the UK in terms of sites of outstanding archaeological interest and it is in close proximity to the World Heritage Sites in Orkney. The University's Marischal Museum has gained a prominent reputation in the archaeological world, with its substantial archaeological collections, conservation laboratory, exhibitions and lecture programme. We have a significant collection of books and journals in the University Library, along with the expertise and interests of research-active members of staff.

Many people will tell you that the AA is a special place; not everyone can tell you why. One of the things that makes it special is that every aspect of its teaching is a negotiation of the space between freedom and its limits. This approach starts on the Foundation Course and continues to the Graduate School – indeed, it could be said to form the entire ethos of the AA. While our culture today appreciates and values freedom, many educational institutions still rely on models of teaching that emphasize preestablished ways of doing things. But it is the tension between freedom and the particularities of its limits that frames all our actions, be they within a school of architecture, or within a democratic society. As architects, we have a primary responsibility to imagine better alternatives to what already exists – homes, places of work, spaces of leisure, etc. – and since we judge our speculations about the future against the past, our imagination necessarily operates in response ‘to the world it both refigures and prefigures’. By making its students as much aware of the historical contingencies as they are of the latest practical, technological and theoretical developments within the profession, the AA seeks to equip them with the means to construct new forms of material imagination. This imagination is, by definition, a form of social and political engagement with the world and cannot be reduced to a purely subjective project. The architect’s imagination must respond to the world of others through the physical manifestation of ideas, constructing new programmes, agendas and relationships that transcend individualism and pluralism. In the same way, it is imperative that the work of a school of architecture is neither subjugated to the programmatic needs of the profession nor allowed to become independent of its requirements. The AA is as much committed to opening up architectural education and practice to this debate today as it has been throughout its 155-year history. With so much talk about the impact of globalization on architecture, the AA has the good fortune to have a student population of over 500, drawn from more than 60 countries. This, I believe, together with the Association’s worldwide membership of approximately 2,600, is another of the AA’s great strengths and gives the work of its students an added diversity. The quality and character of the AA’s academic programmes, the calibre of its students and teachers, the range of its exhibitions, lectures and publications, together with its extensive facilities, provide the ground for producing new and innovative forms of practice in architecture that are socially, politically, economically and ethically engaged with everyday life. This is what makes the AA special. Mohsen Mostafavi, AA Chairman 1995–2004

Why study Archaeology at Chester? Archaeology is available as a single honours degree programme or as a minor, equal or major subject within the combined honours degree programme. The historic city of Chester is an internationally important archaeological site. These programmes use Chester and its hinterland as a model for exploring the archaeology of Britain. They give a broad view of British archaeology, focusing on the historic period, from the beginning of the Roman era to the present age, though the single honours programme also covers late prehistoric Britain. They embrace a mixture of theory, method and practice. Professional archaeologists from Chester Archaeology (Chester City Council’s archaeology service) make a major contribution to the teaching. The programmes incorporate substantial fieldwork elements and students will be able to participate in full-scale archaeological excavation.

The need for the Centre for Sustainable Heritage was recognised by three departments of University College London: The Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, the Institute of Archaeology and the School of Library, Archive and Information Studies and will draw on their strengths and expertise. The Centre has identified, and aims to fill, the gap between disciplines responsible for the physical protection of the moveable and immovable heritage. Its contribution to a sustainable future for the heritage is through participation in collaborative environmental, scientific and technological research, innovative teaching, advice and consultancy. The Centre engages in 'problem-definition' and `solution design' projects to produce evidence and innovative ideas on heritage protection, challenging the traditional divide between preservation and use. It is the Centre's belief that scientific and technological research helps to create an understanding of the contribution that heritage preservation makes to society by elaborating on issues such as heritage value, cultural tourism, cultural identity, quality of life, urban planning, maintenance and whole life costs, economic competitiveness and wealth creation. The Centre is committed to work at an international level whenever possible and actively seeks partners to further this aim.

The Peterborough Adult Education Institute was founded in 1944 and changed its name to Peterborough College of Adult Education (PCAE) in 1970 when it moved into its own building close to the centre of the city (Brook Street). The site has successfully blended the character and personality of the old-style building with the modern facilities and hi-tech offering of the new buildings. PCAE is a very successful and expanding centre of learning for the city of Peterborough delivering courses through over 70 centres, including schools, community centres, faith centres and sites throughout the city.

Our School has ten full-time teaching staff, all of whom are acknowledged experts in their fields of research. Other staff members include a draughtsperson, a computer and information technology specialist and an excavation and post-excavation specialist. The School also has a vibrant postgraduate community many of whom act as tutors and demonstrators for undergraduate classes. Archaeology is an exciting subject and a rewarding career. The massive growth in the Irish economy, which has led to urban renewal and the development of new roads, has greatly increased employment opportunities for archaeologists in recent years, while the increased general interest in archaeology as a leisure activity can be seen in the continuing growth of the heritage industry. Graduates of this School have always been successful in finding employment in professional archaeology and in other walks of life.

Archaeology at University of Winchester The Department came into being in 1978 before which it was part of the History department. Since that date the number of programmes, students and staff has all increased. Our BA Archaeology degree was initiated in 1994, our MA Field Archaeology in 1997 and our ground breaking BA Archaeological Practice in 1999. The interests of the department have also broadened over this period. From a focus almost entirely centred on Britain at our foundations, we now research and teach on the archaeology of Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and the Near East, while our period coverage extends from the earliest part of the Palaeolithic to the Second World War. Nevertheless we have maintained our links with the History department, particularly in the study of the medieval period. There are currently six medieval archaeologists/historians in the two departments
