University of Durham: Department of Archaeology

Durham town
Durham University hosts one of the largest Archaeology departments in Europe, offering an outstanding range of research and teaching expertise.

Our research is global, and ranges from early hominids to post-Medieval archaeology, with strengths in Bioarchaeology, European Prehistory, the worlds of Rome and Egypt, the Middle East and South Asia, and Medieval Europe. Our field programmes stretch from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean and involve excavation, surveys and remote sensing whilst our laboratory research ranges from human palaeopathology to the domestication of the pig. We are also active in the north-east of England through research projects and Archaeological Services Durham University, who provide consultancy and specialist services to the development, environment and heritage sectors.


Rosemary Cramp Fund

The Rosemary Cramp Fund was set up on the retirement of Professor Cramp from the Chair of Archaeology at the University of Durham to honour her many achievements and contributions to archaeology and the heritage.

The Fund makes grants to individuals and organisations who put forward projects that fall within its scope and where there is a strong emphasis on innovation. The main area of interest of the Fund is the archaeology and heritage of the British Isles, with a particular emphasis on Northern Britain between 400 and 1100 AD. Proposals to assist student research projects are especially welcome, though organisations and other individuals are also encouraged to apply.

Archaeological excavation is not normally eligible for support from the Fund. Student tuition fees and ongoing subsistence costs are not eligible for support, nor will archaeological excavation normally be eligible.

Applications forms are available from, and must be submitted by 31 October to:
The Rosemary Cramp Fund, Department of Archaeology, University of Durham, South Road, Durham DH1 3LE.
