Funding Success

A project lead by the School of History, Classics and Archaeology's Dr Lisa-Marie Shillito, Senior Lecturer and Director of the Archaeology labs at Newcastle University, has received funding for state-of-the-art specialist equipment that will strengthen archaeological research capabilities and help to conserve important artefacts and collections.

Working with partners at the Great North Museum: Hancock, the Newcastle Material Culture Analytical Suite (NeMCAS) will be equipped with new facilities for materials analysis, providing students, researchers and community partners access to world-class research facilities.

The new suite will provide a focal point for interdisciplinary research in material culture encompassing art and heritage studies, physical and digital technologies, scientific materials analysis and experimental archaeology.
