About Us

The School of Geography, Archaeology and Palaeoecology (GAP) was formed in 2005 by the merger of the School of Archaeology and Palaeoecology and the School of Geography.

The School combines the study of past and present environments, in both their cultural and physical dimensions. Given the many problems facing us in the 21st century, it is vital that graduates from GAP are well versed in how past and contemporary worlds work and behave. All those who have the desire to know about how the world works, and are equally intrigued by how the past can enliven the study and understanding of the future, are welcome to join with us in this challenging venture.
