Our research takes us from primate ancestors to the emergence of the first states.
Our work around the world drives debate about early hominid evolution. We explore the topics of colonisation, cognition, landscape and the environment, material culture and identity.
We place a particular emphasis on the development and application of innovative analytical technologies and addressing major archaeological questions, from Palaeolithic art and the perception of landscape to domestication and the prehistory of cuisine.
