Why AQA Archaeology?

Archaeology is the fascinating study of past human societies through artefacts, data, buildings and remnants left behind.

Our Archaeology qualifications have been designed to offer students and teachers engaging subject content and variation in the type of assessment. They cover key techniques and approaches to modern archaeological research.

To help you deliver our specifications, we offer a comprehensive range of support that includes direct contact with our archaeology subject team and resources to help you plan and deliver our courses.
