Year 12 History and Archaeology Taster Day
Monday 24 June 2019, 9:30am-3:00pm
Our Departments of Archaeology and History invite Year 12 students to a free 'Discover History and Archaeology Day', taking place here at the University of Sheffield on Monday 24 June - full programme details are below. The event is designed to give students a taste of what university-level study in the two subjects is like. Following a brief introduction, participants will select from a menu of seminar sessions led by PhD students from the two departments. Later in the day they will also get to meet current History and Archaeology undergraduates and hear more about what it's like to study these subjects at university. Archaeology may be a new subject to many students - this day will give you an opportunity to find out more about this interesting discipline.

Students can book places individually and we also accept group bookings (for a maximum of 10 x places per school/ college) from teachers. For group bookings - we can accept one accompanying teacher per group, but we are equally happy for pupils to attend unaccompanied.
Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. We expect participants to engage with the full programme of events, from the 9.30am start until 3.00pm close and ask that you make your travel arrangements around these times.
The event will take place in the Humanities Research Institute (HRI), 34 Gell Street, Sheffield, S3 7QY, a short walk from public transport links on West Street and Glossop Road and from the University Supertram stop on Upper Hanover Street. A campus map is available at here
Please note: the event follows a very different format to an Open Day and will not involve a full 'recruitment pitch'. Students considering applying to study Archaeology and/or History should seek to attend Open Days in addition. Book your place here
