Head's Message


Archaeology has become a subject field of studying human culture through human activity beyond the mere appraisal of past cultures & societies. The application of new knowledge and secrets of human history uncovered through that scientific study is the main aim of Archaeology. Based on the multidisciplinary concept of archaeology, it is internationally connected subjects via likes Tourism  and Cultural Resource Management.

Our department has planned to offer a student centered learning system by instilling in lectures a series of practical skills in field work and research. To create skillful graduates equipped not only with knowledge but also with vocational practice is the ultimate goal of my department.
