Current research in Archaeology at Liverpool uses state-of-the-art interdisciplinary methods and approaches to study the Palaeolithic and Neolithic societies of Southwest Asia, Mediterranean Europe and Africa, human evolution, archaeobotanical science, archaeozoology, bioarchaeology, archaeomaterials, classical archaeology, the cultures of the ancient Near East and the Mediterranean, later European prehistory and Medieval and post-Medieval archaeology.

The Department of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology is internationally reputed for its world-class interdisciplinary research in diverse fields ranging from the origins of humanity and Old World prehistory to the cultures, languages and texts of the late antiquity and the archaeology of the historical periods.

ACE has particular research strengths in the fields of Old World prehistory (especially the Palaeolithic and Neolithic of Southwest Asia, Mediterranean Europe and Africa), Human evolution, Archaeobotanical science (archaeobotany & anthracology), Archaeozoology, Bioarchaeology (stable isotopes and human remains), Archaeomaterials, Classical archaeology, the archaeology and cultures of the Ancient Near East and the Mediterranean, Later British and European prehistory and Medieval and post-Medieval archaeology.

Fieldwork is an important part of our research and we have several field projects based in the UK and abroad (Bulgaria, Egypt, Greece, Italy, Iraq, Kenya, Jordan, Turkey, Zambia).

With 42 academic & research staff and over 60 postgraduate researchers ACE forms one of the largest hubs for the academic study of the human past in the UK.

We welcome Archaeology PhD research proposals that provide a close match with our research strengths in Old World prehistory (especially the Palaeolithic and Neolithic of Southwest Asia, Mediterranean Europe and Africa), Human evolution, Archaeobotanical (seeds, charcoal) science, Bioarchaeology, Archaeozoology, Archaeomaterials, the Iron Age in the Mediterranean and the Near East, Classical archaeology, Mesopotamian texts, languages, cultures and economies, Later British and European prehistory, and Medieval and post-Medieval archaeology.
