University of Oxford Online Courses in Archaeology
Cave paintings, castles and pyramids, Neanderthals, Romans and Vikings - archaeology is about the excitement of discovery, finding out about our ancestors, exploring landscape through time, piecing together puzzles of the past from material remains.
These courses enable you to experience all this through online archaeological resources based on primary evidence from excavations and artefacts and from complex scientific processes and current thinking. Together with guided reading, discussion and activities you can experience how archaeologists work today to increase our knowledge of people and societies from the past.
The following courses are available:

Our May day trip will feature the Roman Baths and Temple complex at Aquae Sulis (Bath) and the museum at Corinium Dobunnorum (Cirencester).
The origin of Bath’s importance over the centuries has depended on the location of a hot spring emerging to the surface. This spring became a place of worship for the river goddess, Sulis, a deity of the local Celtic tribe of the Dobunni and it carried on as a source of healing and worship for the Romans and into later times. The Roman temple was dedicated to Sulis Minerva.
