Faculty and researchers are engaged in a range of international projects, many of which actively encourage student participation (see e.g. the sample of current and future Level 3 dissertations).
At the present time, ArcPal members are working in the following countries, tackling a wide range of topics from: the evolution of our species in Africa, to the effects of insularity, the spread of Bronze Age metalurgy in Europe, or the impact of sea-level change on past and present day communities – to name just a few.
