Welcome to the archaeology guide

This subject guide for archaeology makes it easy for you to get an overview of a section of the available material that The Royal Library makes available to students and staff at the University of Copenhagen. 

The subject of archaeology covers the study of cultures on the basis of relics from various ages. According to the Danish tradition these areas of research are divided into three main categories:

Prehistoric archaeology, which primarily covers Europe (especially Scandianvia) and often periods and regions with no written sources, but the time frame of the subject stretches into modern times.

Near Eastern archaeology, which covers the Middle East and North Africa from prehistoric time to present day.

Classical archaeology, which covers the Greek colonies, Italy and the Roman empire. 

The archaeology of the rest of the world (including Medieval archaeology) is not being taught at the University of Copenhagen specifically, but the library acquires books on the subjects nontheless.
