Welcome to world-class archaeology


Secret Histories: Shakespeare’s Tomb Project

Welcome to the Centre of Archaeology at Staffordshire University.

We are a world-class research centre that also offers innovative learning opportunities, consultancy services and community archaeology programmes – all supported by cutting-edge equipment and facilities.

Our researchers and students tackle some of the biggest issues affecting global society in the 21st century. We explore how conflict, genocide, human evolution, identity and climate change have shaped the world in which we live, and utilize archaeological field skills to find, document and preserve the evidence and heritage connected to these events.

Our dedicated Commercial Services team is committed to providing unrivalled support, guidance and expertise to ensure the successful completion of archaeological projects ranging from long-term research programmes to commercial, development-led ventures and forensic police consultancy.
