As part of the Europe wide celebration of ten years of support by the European Research Council, the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research will host an event featuring many of the projects closely connected with Cambridge in the fields of Anthropology, Archaeology and Classics. Each project has been invited to give a short presentation outlining their research and to exhibit a poster explaining the aims and achievements of their work at the current stage in their five-year programme. The projects range across the full extent of human existence, both in time and space.
