Key relevant qualifications
The Department of Archaeology, University of Cambridge, is an extremely successful research institution. In the assessments conducted through the REA, the department has consistently been given the highest ranking. The university provides an excellent intellectual and scientific environment, with unsurpassed resources for research. It is a particular strength that the department has several research active scholars within the field of Later Prehistory, and has built a lively research group composed of graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, academic visitors and staff. This has given rise to important work on new approaches to the nature of material culture and its relationship to social organisation including variables such as gender, age, social differentiation and regionalism. There will also be a natural synergy with other ongoing projects, such as the Leverhulme funded project on ‘Changing beliefs’ and its focus on the body. There is thus a strong local intellectual environment for the proposed research.
