Archaeology Society

Did you love lingering in museums as a kid? Or dream of exploring the past in far-flung places? Are you curious to find out more about archaeology?

Well, you’ve come to the right place! ArchSoc is Sydney University’s student archaeology society. We host a bunch of events including trivia, movie nights, awesome seminar talks and career info events, and keep students informed about upcoming excavations (both in Australia and overseas)! We also notify students about related job openings, volunteering opportunities and scholarships, and facilitate contact with the Archaeology Department and its faculty. You don't have to be studying archaeology to join - anyone who is interested is welcome!

Why join us?
If you’re interested in learning more about archaeology and hanging out with like-minded people, then ArchSoc is for you!

Famous FOMO experiences on offer
You definitely cannot miss Trivia Night, Movie Night or our fantastic annual Symposium! Not to mention Honours Night, along with artefact handling sessions, our mentoring programme, and casual catch-ups. We keep our members in the loop about volunteering, employment openings, and opportunities to participate in excavations both near and far! We also post about all upcoming public archaeology seminars & lectures at uni, so you can hear about new discoveries from the people who found them!
