Childe Studentships for Masters Students

The IoA is delighted to announce the introduction of the Gordon Childe Studentship in memory of the eminent archaeologist Professor Gordon Childe, the Institute’s director from 1946 to 1957. Childe was the first person to write a synthesis of European prehistory. He also developed models for what he dubbed the 'Neolithic Revolution' and 'Urban Revolution', by which he tried to explain how humans in prehistory broke beyond hunting and gathering into settled farming communities, which then developed into new types of social organisation, spawning cities and civilisations. His most famous excavation was that of the Neolithic site of Skara Brae in Orkney.

Three Studentships covering UK/EU fees and a stipend of £11,817 are available to UK/EU fee paying students accepted onto the following programmes:

MA in Archaeology and Heritage of Asia

MSc in Environmental Archaeology
