Modern

The study of the archaeology of the modern world is often referred to as historical archaeology or post-medieval archaeology. It deals with the period from the late fifteenth century up to the present. It is global in scope, theoretically and methodologically diverse, and highly interdisciplinary. Current research in the field is showcased at the annual CHAT (Contemporary and Historical Archaeology in Theory) conference, held at UCL in 2008. Research in the archaeology of the modern world at the Institute focuses on fields as diverse as the sciences and technologies of Renaissance Europe, the bombing of London in the Second World War, and African Diaspora sites in America.
