Institute 50th Anniversary Celebrations
Today, Oxford alumni hold leading posts in university archaeology departments, museums and heritage organisations around the world. The vibrant intellectual network of the School of Archaeology and its alumni is also reaching an ever-growing global audience through museum exhibitions, popular publications, enhanced websites, and other media.
Eminent archaeologists from Sir Arthur Evans to Lawrence of Arabia and Sir Max Mallowan (husband of Agatha Christie, and a distinguished archaeologist) have called Oxford home. Their legacy continues to provide inspiration; for example, Sir Arthur’s drawings and journals from his extraordinary discovery of the Palace of Knossos on Crete, now archived at the Ashmolean Museum, remain a crucial resource for students studying the Bronze Age.
It is not just in the field of Archaeology that our alumni have made a difference. Members of the School have gone on to make significant careers in the fields of advertising, conservation, television, journalism, chemistry and the legal profession (amongst many others).
The School is keen to rewnew links with its alumni and provide a mechanism for alumni to contact lost friends. We would love to hear from you, so please get in touch.
