Flinders staff and students conduct research both nationally and internationally, across all time periods from the Pleistocene to the present.  The Department's current research strengths centre on maritime archaeology, historical archaeology, cultural heritage management and Indigenous archaeology. You can see our current projects for details of some active projects.

Archaeology's research strengths reinforce and promote the department's core teaching strengths, particularly in relation to our vibrant Masters coursework and Research Higher Degree graduate programmes.

Moreover, staff and students maintain an ongoing commitment to promoting and communicating their research activities to national and international academic audiences and the general public, through community fieldschools, publications (see individual staff pages for details), departmental seminars, public lectures, and regular extracurricular events, such as National Archaeology Week.
