Households and Communities

Our research examines the materiality and social construction of households and communities.

About this Group

We explore the nature of settled life, the impact of changing political configurations and environments on households’ constitution and their use of space, community creation and the lived experiences of daily life from the ancient Near East and Mediterranean to Iron Age Britain and beyond. Our research is multi-disciplinary involving cross-departmental and international collaboration. Our fields of specialisation include material culture, spatial, structural and settlement analysis, geo-informatics, quantitative methods, human osteoarchaeology, stable isotope analysis and experimental archaeology.
