Public

Public archaeology refers to two distinct fields: public engagement with the archaeological process; and the study of archaeology in its social, cultural, political, economic and legal contexts. To influence and study the public understanding of the past researchers at UCL study museum and heritage sites, create educational resources relating to their research, and conduct fieldwork aimed at involving the public in archaeology. Researchers at UCL study issues such as archaeology in public policy, the looting of sites and museums, archaeology in political propaganda, and the economic impacts of heritage tourism. Institute staff act as editors for the international journal Public Archaeology.
