UCD School of Archaeology

Scoil na Seandálaíochta UCD


UCD School of Archaeology’s ‘Landscape and Environment’ research theme aims to promote research investigating the past interaction of people with their environments.  Landscape Archaeology, both in terms of theory and methodological practice, has long been a research and teaching strength in the School. Recent staff appointments have also enabled the School to promote Environmental Archaeology, with a particular focus on geoarchaeology and environmental reconstruction, and to expand the geographical range of our research interests to include projects in Laos, England and Crete as well as Ireland.  Research projects led by the members of the Landscape and Environmentresearch theme have attracted funding from INSTAR, IRCHSS RDI, RIA, the Heritage Council, British Academy and other sources.
