About

The Department of Anthropology and Archaeology has an international 'four-field' approach, combining archaeology with evolutionary, social and linguistic anthropology. This MPhil in Anthropology and Archaeology is taught at University of Bristol.

Overview

Our key strengths lie in our integrated approaches to understanding cultural, biological and social change: the spread of peoples, their ideas and material artefacts. We focus particularly on adaptation, adversity and globalisation.

Our research spans from earliest prehistory to the modern day. Field research takes place in the UK, as well as Brazil, Ethiopia, Kenya, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Singapore, Slovenia, Tanzania, Turkey, Venezuela, Vietnam, and elsewhere.

We are well equipped to undertake anthropological and archaeological fieldwork, including excavation, and we have world-class radiocarbon dating, isotopic and micro-imaging laboratories on site. We foster partnerships with professional institutions nationally and locally to provide additional collaborative opportunities for our students (e.g. with the Royal Anthropological Institute Ethnographic Film Festival, UNESCO City of Film, and Bristol Museum and Art Gallery).

Careers

Graduates from this MPhil in Anthropology and Archaeology at University of Bristol go on to work in diverse professional contexts, including higher education and research, museums, the heritage sector, international development, NGOs, and policy-making organisations.

Programme Structure

Research groups:

  • Adversity: We address the resilience of humanity in the face of major challenges past and present, such as disease, conflict and technological change
  • Adaptation: We explore the biological and cultural evolutionary processes that generate human diversity
  • Globalisation: We discover how the movements of people, ideas and objects articulate with continuity and change, from the Neolithic to the present day
