Welcome to the Centre for Battlefield Archaeology

Welcome to the Centre for Battlefield Archaeology

The Centre for Battlefield Archaeology was established in April 2006. The Centre is the first facility of its kind and has earned a reputation as an international centre of excellence for the burgeoning study of the archaeology of battlefields and other archaeological manifestations of human conflict.

Members of the Centre for Battlefield Archaeology include some of the most experienced battlefield archaeologists in the UK and as an internationally respected team provide a highly efficient service capable of meeting the needs of curators, planners and other clients in tackling field surveys, excavations and desk based assessments related to the heritage management of the battlefields or any other aspect of conflict archaeology, at home or abroad.

The Centre has carried out a number of high profile projects on battlefields and related sites of conflict at home and abroad. It also offers the first MLitt/PgDip in Battlefield and Conflict Archaeology which is now in its third year. An increasing number of PhD students are also finding a rewarding work environment within the Centre.
