Seminar für Ur- und Frühgeschichte

Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Pre- and Protohistory

The Department is located in the rear building of the Institute of Archaeology (Roman and Greek Archaeology) on the central campus of the University of Göttingen just next to the State- and Universitylibrary. You have the possibility to study Pre- and Protohistory as Bachelor and Master Degree in a familiar atmosphere, which offers a close contact between students, Ph.D. students and the academic staff. There is also the possibility to study Ancient Cultures with a focus on Pre- and Protohistory. The focus of the Department lies in landscape and settlement archaeology as well as questions regarding the history of early economy. The basic education includes the time from Palaeolithic to Medieval period, with their different topics and material groups. Thanks to several research projects, the students have a good view into the actual work of an archaeologist and have the possibility to write their own scientific thesis in connection to the research projects.
