Institute 50th Anniversary Celebrations
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.
Today, Oxford alumni hold leading posts in university Archaeology departments and museums 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.
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 hope to launch an alumni newsletter and hold regular alumni events, building on the successful 50th anniversary celebrations of last year. We would love to hear from you, so please get in touch.
