Facilities and Staff
The Institute of Archaeology provides a stimulating environment for postgraduate study, with over 290 registered Masters students and 120 MPhil/PhD students - see for further details. Its outstanding archaeological library is complemented by University College London's main library, University of London Senate House and other specialist libraries.
Students from the Institute are able to discuss and learn from London's many museums, galleries and other archaeological spaces, but in particular have easy access to UCL's own important museums and collections.
Tim Schadla-Hall has a strong interest in promoting public involvement in archaeology, and understanding the politics and economics of archaeology, archaeological legislation, the illicit trade in antiquities, archaeology and the media, indigenous archaeology, and museum management practices. He also specialises in landscape archaeology, post glacial north-western Europe, and post- medieval country houses.
The other teaching staff for this degree also bring together a range and depth of expertise that is arguably unparalleled at other institutions. For an impression of their research interests please visit the individual course pages and the staff profiles of course coordinators. Additional guest speakers include Neal Ascherson, Roger Bland, David V. Clarke, Dai Morgan Evans, Richard Morris, David Prince, Daniel Pett, Lord Redesdale, Ulrike Sommer, Hedley Swain, Kathy Tubb and Dominic Tweddle.
