McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research
The McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research serves as an interdisciplinary hub providing a shared intellectual home for archaeologists at Cambridge with a programme of seminars, workshops, conferences, publications and research grants.

- as an interdisciplinary centre for archaeology in Collegiate Cambridge, serving staff in a variety of divisions, faculties, museums and colleges.
- as the ‘research school’ of the Division of Archaeology, facilitating the work of Division staff, postdoctoral fellows and postgraduate students.
