'Founded in 1843 for the study of archaeology, art, and architecture, and to promote the preservation of historic monuments and antiquities ...

'LSE Anthropology is world famous and world leading ... Our work is based on ethnographic research: detailed studies of societies and communities in which we have immersed ourselves via long term fieldwork. Placing the everyday lives and meanings of ordinary people - whoever and wherever they are - at the heart of the discipline, we take nothing for granted ... The Department runs a number of seminar series and lectures throughout the Michaelmas, Lent and Summer terms ... We hold the annual Malinowski Memorial Lecture which, unlike most named lectures, is awarded to outstanding anthropologists at an early stage of their career.'

The breadth and depth of this interdisciplinary approach is reflected in our teaching and research ... The Department holds a range of online seminars every week during term time. These seminars are open to all ... The Mary Douglas Memorial Lecture, an annual lecture, in memory of Dame Mary Douglas (1921-2007), is sponsored by the Royal Anthropological Institute, the School of Anthropology & Museum Ethnography at the University of Oxford, and the Department of Anthropology at UCL.'

'The Department of Archaeology at York is among the world’s most highly regarded departments for the subject of archaeology ... Our outlook is both local and global: we exist for the city of York, animating the city, giving something back to it, but we work internationally to deliver the same approach to our global audiences. We are developing new methods of exploring and visualising ancient landscapes, excavating sites, analysing ancient artefacts, human and animal bones, pioneering the biomolecular study of all manner of organic and inorganic compounds, and conserving our shared heritage in order to tell diverse stories and build a sustainable future.'
