Archaeobotany and Archaeozoology is a one-year MSc-specialisation at the internationally renowned Archaeology Faculty of Leiden University. The programme focuses on the palaeo-zoological and palaeo-botanical research of animal and plant remains.
During the programme, you will be confronted with the application of aDNA and isotope studies in the field of palaeo-zoological and palaeo-botanical research. In addition, you will benefit from the expertise of national and international guest lecturers.
Apart from the laboratory work, you will also have the opportunity to work under supervision on material from current research projects, while literature based studies are also possible. Field excursions will give you the opportunity to identify plants, examine different landscapes or excavate a range of archaeological sites. As part of the programme, you may also choose to work as an intern in a laboratory elsewhere. This will provide you with valuable hands-on experience and will expand your network.
