About

The Department of Archaeology from University of Cambridge, provides research training for PhD students in Archaeology, through regular research skills seminars. All PhD students are assigned a supervisor and an advisor and may have additional co-supervisors and/or advisors who make up their ‘supervisory team’. 

Overview

The Department of Archaeology from University of Cambridge offers an outstanding environment for research and supervision leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Archaeology on a wide range of archaeological topics ranging in time from the Palaeolithic to the modern day, and in space from the Americas to the UK and Europe, the Middle East, South Asia, South East Asia and Australia. We also specialise in archaeological theory, heritage studies, African studies, Assyriology, Egyptology and archaeological science.

Features

All PhD students are assigned a supervisor and an advisor and may have additional co-supervisors and/or advisors who make up their ‘supervisory team’. You will have frequent meetings with your supervisor and other team members, either together or individually.  PhD students receive a progress review at the end of their second and fourth terms.

 These assessments take the form of a progress report and interview with their supervisor and other teaching staff at the end of the second term and a 10,000-word pilot study and research outline at the end of the fourth term.
