School Bulletin

The School of Archaeology & Ancient History produce (usually in November) an annual Bulletin, which is a vehicle for disseminating news about the many and varied activities and research actviities of both the department and the attached archaeology unit (ULAS). There's much to read about staff, plus also about students - postgraduate and undergraduate too - in terms of their work, ideas, finds, and publications.  The Bulletin is available to anyone and is a very popular pick-up piece on Open Days to help reinforce the range of things we do here!

The 2013 bulletin features an update on Richard III and the Greyfriar’s Project; Prof. David Mattingly on the award of the Queen's Anniversary prize plus other news from the School and ULAS; a report on Dr Richard Thomas's involvement in fowl research.
