Some research you will do independently, under the guidance and supervision of world-leading experts in the field, could potentially lead to published papers.
The Dissertation and the optional Practical Guided Study module give you the opportunity to develop your own research projects, fitted uniquely to your personal interests, experiences, and background.

Wondering what archaeological research has been going on at universities around Australia (and sometimes overseas that relates to Australian archaeology)? 2006 Karrikajurren: Creating Community with an Art Centre in Aboriginal Australia. 2014 Spatially Resolved Strontium Isotope Micro-Analysis of Lower and Middle Palaeolithic Fauna from Archaeological Sites in Israel and Southern France. 2006 Gold Fever: Disease and its Cultural Relationship: A Case Study on the Development of the Colony of Victoria, 1850 to 1900.Helga Wöcherl’s dissertation (1997, University of Arizona) examined the role played by hunted animal resources in subsistence practices during the transition to agriculture in settlements along the Santa Cruz River in the Tucson Basin.This drew on multiple Desert Archaeology investigations occasioned by construction work on Interstate 10 and its frontage roads during the 1990s, including excavations Helga directed at Columbus Park and the site of El Taller and her work has continued to consider subsistence practices in the Early Agricultural period along the Santa Cruz floodplain.Desert’s petrographers continue to expand the sets of petrofacies characterization throughout the state of Arizona, providing an invaluable resource for ceramic temper identification and the attendant inferences about prehistoric pottery manufacture and exchange.The core of Rebecca Dean’s dissertation (2003, University of Arizona) rests on faunal data from our excavations at Los Pozos and Las Capas.The MSc Bioarchaeology is designed to provide you with hands-on practical training and scientific research skills, and while you are learning you will also be contributing to genuine ‘live’ archaeological research projects.Some research you will do as collaborative class projects – for the module Environmental Archaeology, for example – may result in co-authored scientific reports.The bulk of the data for his dissertation was recovered through Desert’s excavations of Las Capas, which Jim led as project director.This scale of work is made possible by the fact that two of the Southwest’s strongest anthropology and archaeology graduate programs, at University of Arizona and Arizona State University, are located within 100 miles of our offices.Max (Andrea) Freeman was Desert’s resident geoarchaeologist before moving on to an academic career as an associate professor at the University of Calgary.Her dissertation (1997, University of Arizona) dealt with the hydroclimatological processes that cause channel changes on the Santa Cruz River, and how geomorphic and paleoenvironmental variables conditioned decision-making by the ancient people who lived along the river. Her dissertation (1998 , University of Arizona) presented temper provenance modeling with guidelines for the assessment of geological resource availability.
