New Archaeology

Novosibirsk State University
Institute for the Humanities

The Center of New Archaeology of Novosibirsk State University is established within Project 5-100 that aims at maximizing the competitive position of Russian universities in the global research and education market
As a key objective we see the development of supplementary education in archaeology with an emphasis on interdisciplinarity and applicability of knowledge. Rejecting the old-school concept of archaeology being a part of historical science, we transition to addressing it as a human science instead.

In order to increase the students' level of comprehension in the field of specific issues of archaeology, anthropology and related studies
we create a modern educational space
for carrying out practice-oriented interactive lessons.
