Past Cultural Change (PCC)

    Organisation profile

    Our research explores the material manifestation of cultural change through time and space. Our members combine innovative scientific methods with theoretically-informed analyses to understand past human experience, bringing together the humanities and the sciences. All members are actively engaged in field and laboratory work, with current projects in the Mediterranean, North Atlantic, Russia, North America, and throughout Ireland, from prehistory to the present. The cluster is also host to the Centre for Archaeological Fieldwork (CAF) a leading archaeological research unit carrying out projects on behalf of the Northern Ireland Environment Agency and other public and private sector bodies. CAF staff are actively involved in research and teaching, and students at all levels benefit from the ample opportunities for hands on experience. Members of the cluster take pride in our student-centred learning, with emphasis on small group teaching and intensive practical education. We offer a range of masters-level teaching capitalising upon our unique blend of scientific and cultural archaeology. We have an active group of research students, and we welcome a wide range of visiting scholars to our seminar series.
