The 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. It also provides laboratory space for a range of archaeological research across continents, periods and approaches.
The Institute provides an intellectual base for archaeologists at the University of Cambridge:
as a postdoctoral research institute within the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology. In this role the Institute independently supports archaeological fieldwork, other archaeological research, research fellows, visiting scholars, conferences and publications.
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.
Cambridge owes its world-leading excellence in research and teaching to the generosity of its supporters. Our history is synonymous with a history of far-sighted benefaction, and the same is as true today as it has ever been.
