If it was from a respectable uni like Durham or Edinburgh, for example, would it leave a lot of career paths open other than archaeology eg media, journalism, NGOs?

For media and journalism you would need to get substantial work experience during your degree (regardless which subject you study - except for vocational degrees that allow you to accrue this experience as part of your course).

Would the degree choice affect my chances?

Compared to what other degree options?

What other variables are there? If you chose a different subject would you be looking at the same universities or those with lower entry requirements? With a different subject would you be as likely to complete the degree and achieve a 2i?

I am a straight A student and would still be looking at these unis, what about compared to history or politics?
Compared to those subjects it wouldn't make a huge difference - especially if you are more motivated to succeed on an archaeology course and find a course that includes elements of anthropology.

There's not really anything to split between them in terms of employment options (and degree classification will count for much more than subject for the industries you're talking about)
