Prehistoric Worlds: Research and Impact Group
The Prehistoric Worlds Research and Impact Group brings together researchers studying a wide range of issues, sites, and artefacts from across the whole of the prehistoric time spectrum. This vibrant body of researchers and post-graduate students covers topics ranging in time from the Lower Palaeolithic to the end of the Iron Age, and in space from Torquay to Damascus. The group combines competing theoretical and empirical backgrounds to create new synergies in cross-period and cross-area discourse.
The group is highly international both in its research subjects and in team membership; some of its projects focus largely on Britain, but most of them involve working overseas or with overseas colleagues, or on themes that transcend national boundaries. The aim is to provide a forum in which broad-ranging and widely informed interpretation is the norm.
A number of these projects directly engage with the public, while others impact on policy making, for example in the management and preservation of archaeological sites.
