Archaeological Sciences Education Down Under

The Australian National University in Canberra recently started a Masters of Archaeological Science Program. The program includes several themes, including Environmental Archaeology, Archaeological Site Science, and Archaeology, Climate Change and Natural Hazards, among others. The program philosophy touches on some interesting ideas, including how archaeological science can shape policy and shape landscapes.

Just recently the first graduate of the program was awarded his degree. I hope that we can see development of more archaeological science programs and departments here in Australia and around the world.
