Research in Archaeology

Hadrian's wallResearch in Archaeology is organised in three strands. Each strand includes specialists in later prehistoric, classical and historical archaeology, ensuring theoretical and methodological exchange and dynamism. Scholars from other parts of the university also participate in each strand, encouraging collaborative and interdisciplinary research.

We are specialists on later prehistory, Greek and Roman archaeology, and the archaeology of historic periods. Our geographical areas of interest range from the Middle East to the north Atlantic.

Find out more about our current research projects, and academic staff in archaeology. For a breakdown of staff research themes, see our research areas.

Our outstanding facilities include research suites for postgraduates with new computing facilities, and an archaeology laboratory built with support from the Wolfson Foundation. We have close links with Newcastle University’s Great North Museum: Hancock and its internationally important collection of Greek, Etruscan, Roman, and British artefacts. Our Cowen Library is housed in the Library of the Great North Museum: Hancock.
