Save A level Archaeology

This petition had 13,368 supporters

The exam board AQA have decided to scrap A level archaeology. As a subject leader of this awesome A level I am not starting this petition to keep my job, I am doing this to ensure that my students are not the last ones to experience this fantastic subject. It is not a soft subject, it requires a knowledge of Science, History, English literature, and allows you to develop skills that are required in so may walks of life. It is also a subject taught in many different institutions from state schools to private and from Sixth Form Colleges to Further Education. It brings so many Equality and Diversity discussions together and enables students to discuss complex ideas about what it means to be human. It is the reason I have a PhD and has made me the teacher I am today. Let's save this subject from what is clearly a money saving tactic. AQA is a registered charity, it needs to act like one.
