Student Spotlight

The Bachelor of Arts History and Archaeology is probably the best programme I chose to enrol in. Archaeology inspires me to understand the world around me.  Archaeology allows me to hold, examine and sort materials from excavated sites like at Fort Stewart, White Marl, Port Royal and many other places.
