The School of Archaeological and Forensic Sciences uniquely integrates Archaeological Sciences, Biological Anthropology, Cultural Archaeology and Forensic Sciences to further the study of people, their society and their environments in the present and the past. Our approach is profoundly multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary, bridging the sciences and the humanities.
This vision is promoted through the school's specialist groups including the Biological Anthropology Research Centre, the Stable Isotope Centre and Bradford Visualisation, the university centre where archaeologists and forensic scientists use the latest technologies to capture, image, analyse and disseminate every aspect of archaeological activity. From digital objects to landscapes, geophysics, GIS and the creation of virtual environments, Together the School promotes provides new ways to see and understand our past, present and future and uses leading research to inform teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
