Africa

UCL is one of the world’s major centres of Africanist archaeological research, with staff members working on field projects in various centres, and others undertaking specialist work on African metallurgy, archaeobotany and faunal studies. African archaeology has enjoyed a renaissance at the Institute since 1994 with over 15 PhDs and numerous MAs in the field since that date. Staff research ranges from the Diaspora and historical archaeology, back through early social complexity, agricultural origins and the stone age. Current Institute fieldwork includes projects in Mali, Uganda, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone and at disapora sites in the United States.
