Bronze Age

The Bronze Age is associated with some of the world’s great civilisations, the development of social complexity and long-distance connections between societies. The Institute has fourteen leading scholars in Bronze Age archaeology on its staff. They have numerous field projects and an outstanding spread of expertise - in textual evidence, material culture and archaeological science, and are at the forefront of creating comparative, global perspectives that feed directly into their teaching. Their studies encompass the development of agricultural systems, the commoditisation of material culture, trade networks, urban and palace societies, settlement and ritual landscapes, and metallurgical technologies – and geographically stretch from China and India to the ancient Western Asia, Egypt, the Aegean, Italy, continental Europe and the British Isles.
