The Institute of Prehistoric and Protohistoric Archaeology in Kiel has a long tradition in economic and settlement archaeology. It has four departments with ten permanently employed researchers, c. 38 PhD students, 14 administrative staff, and c. 500 students. The staff includes both archaeologists and scientists who have access to facilities for palaeoenvironmental analysis as well as for archaeological analysis of social processes. Social archaeology forms the main component of the prehistoric research: Enquiries into the economic and political foundations of interaction are conducted through fieldwork and analytical research revealing the historical background to innovation and change. Excavations of Late Neolithic and Bronze Age sites in Germany and other countries are currently at the core of research.
The institute has different laboratories and is closely associated with Schloss Gottorf Museum which encompasses among other things a large department for conservation. The Institute is the most successful within the Faculty of Arts and Humanities in obtaining external funds (c. 1.1M euros per year). Its cross-disciplinary research environment offers a unique combination of both natural sciences and humanities. The institute is a member of both the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences and mathematics as well as the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
