The McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research hosts multiple conferences and workshops throughout the calendar year. Many showcase research taking place within the Department of Archaeology and the Institute, bringing together researchers from other universities as well as the wider, interconnected disciplines within the University of Cambridge itself.


Conference and workshop funding support is available through the DM McDonald Grants and Awards fund and an annual £10,000 ‘Flagship Conference’ Competition.
