Welcome to the School of Archaeology and Anthropology

The School of Archaeology and Anthropology combines four streams of social research and teaching: anthropology, archaeology, biological anthropology and the interdisciplinary field of development studies. Collectively we are engaged with understanding past and present human experience in diverse and transforming social contexts.

Our school offers an innovative range of programs at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, with particular strengths in archaeological science,  biological anthropology, forensic anthropology, Australian Indigenous studies, medical anthropology, visual anthropology, and applied and participatory development.

ANU is the most research-intensive university in Australia and our staff are energetic teachers as well as active researchers working on projects across remote and metropolitan Australia, Africa, Asia, the Pacific, Europe, South America and India.
