北海道で考古学をまなぶ — 北海道大学考古学研究室

Studying archaeology in Hokkaido —
Laboratory of Archaeology, Hokkaido University (LOAHU)



       

 

2019年4月,北海道大学大学院文学研究科の文学院への改組に伴い,旧北方文化論講座の考古学部門を基礎として考古学研究室が新設されました。

教員4名のおもな研究対象は,時間的には旧石器・新石器〜現代,空間的には日本列島・東アジア・シベリア・北太平洋沿岸と,幅広い時代・地域をカバーする日本屈指の考古学研究室です。人工遺物や遺構の先端的分析にくわえて,動物考古学・植物考古学・民俗誌考古学・考古科学・文化財化学(年代測定,同位体分析など)のトップランナーに指導を受けることができる点でも日本では他に例がない特色ある研究室です。

高校生のみなさん,このめぐまれた環境でぜひ考古学を学んでください。文学院では社会人学生の時間的・経済的負担を軽減する制度も用意されていますので,社会人のみなさんにもぜひ大学院の門戸を叩いていただきたいと願っています。

 

Laboratory of Archaeology Hokkaido University (LOAHU) was established in 2019 based on Department of Archaeology in Laboratory of Northern Studies when the Graduate School of Letters Hokkaido University was reorganized into the Graduate School of Humanities and Human Sciences Hokkaido University.

 

Study of faculty members at LOAHU focuses on the Paleolithic, the Jomon/Neolithic, the Yayoi, the Epi-Jomon, the Satsumon, and the Ainu cultures across the Japanese Islands, East Asia, Siberia, and the North Pacific, meaning that this is one of the representative archaeological institutions in Japan which deal with various periods and a wide area. Also, it is the only archaeology laboratory in Japanese universities which can provide education of zooarchaeology, paleoethnobotany, enthnoarchaeology, and archaeological science such as radiocarbon dating and stable isotope analysis as well as advanced research on artifacts and archaeological features.

 

Learn archaeology and advance your research in this favorable situation! Because there is a support system for graduate students which mitigates time constraint and financial defrayment, we are welcome people who would like to complete MA and PhD dissertations working for various institutions, museums, and companies.
