Graduate Archaeology at Oxford

GAO logo
GAO is a student-led organization for graduate students in Archaeology, Classical Archaeology, and Archaeological Science at the University of Oxford.
GAO organises workshops for graduate students as part of the program for the development of graduate skills. These courses have the purpose of enriching our skills in subsidiary disciplines of archaeology. The courses aim to give students the necessary practical skills to be more versatile in the field as well as in their future professional careers.
As part of their commitment to promote the exchange of ideas between the various fields of archaeology, they organise a yearly postgraduate conference. 
If you wish to get in touch with any of the members of the committee, you can find our individual email addresses via the link below, or simply send an email to
