The Department of Archaeology at Cambridge is the United Kingdom's first university Department of Archaeology.
At Cambridge we promote archaeology as a discipline concerned with the entirety of human history. Our scholars and students conduct research on topics ranging in time from the Palaeolithic to the modern day, and in space from the Americas to the UK and Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.
We combine innovative theory and practice with active field programmes throughout the world to develop new research directions. We have laboratories for bioarchaeology, archaeogenetics, zooarchaeology, geoarchaeology and isotope analysis and provide for our students and researchers world-famous museum and library collections.
