Utilising our own resources in addition to those of established partners in other departments and elsewhere, the Group offers analysis in all materials organic and inorganic, but is especially strong in ceramics, glass and bone.

The Group provides a focus for teaching in both archaeology and forensics, running short courses and MSc degrees. It encourages PhD research, often linking with established archaeology departments elsewhere to provide a wider range of training.

CAFA is led by Professor Andrew Shortland.
