Archaeological research at Aberdeen spans the arts and humanities, physical, social and biological sciences, reflecting the inter-disciplinary nature of the Archaeology and the collaborative ethos at University of Aberdeen. Our research culture is outward looking and international, exploring big questions in innovative ways. We have developed a collaborative approach to contemporary debates including migration and mobility, climate change, human-environment interactions, and culture-contact/change.

Core Research Themes 

Our research currently operates under three principal and overlapping major themes within which we support a range of topics and projects.
