Studying Archaeology from 14 to 16 Years in Scotland
In Scotland students follow the Scottish National Qualification system. Unfortunately archaeology is not specifically included as a subject at Standard Grade, although it is included within the Classical Studies subject.
The course includes an examination of Greek and Roman life and some research activities within the course involve students finding information in museums and at archaeological sites.
Additionally the Classical Greek/Latin standard grade subjects include a study area on Greek/Roman history & civilisation. Whilst this is not specifically archaeology, it can include the archaeological evidence that underpins our knowledge of both subject areas.
Unfortunately, the history standard grade, whilst providing valuable skills to interpret the past does not directly cover archaeology.
More information on Scottish National Qualifications Standard Grades is available from the Scottish Qualifications Authority.
