Archaeological Heritage and Society
The Department of Archaeological Heritage and Society focuses on the relationships between past and present, the role of heritage in society, and how heritage conceived broadly can contribute to improving quality of life and environment.
The Department of Archaeological Heritage and Society has developed four main research lines, which are attached to two chair groups (Archaeological Heritage Management and Heritage and Rights of indigenous Peoples).
Main lines of research and education
- Archaeological Heritage Management
- Heritage and Rights of Indigenous Peoples
- Landscape, Heritage and Governance
