Investigating the evidence from three million years of our past is central to understanding what it means to be human.
FOREVER REDISCOVERING HUMANITY
Archaeology's uniquely long perspective spans from our earliest origins to recent developments that have shaped the modern world: agriculture, urbanisation, capitalism and religion.
At Reading, we are especially focused on those issues from the past that are critical to our shared global future – economic risk and resilience, human diets and health, climate change, and inequality, migration and identity.
Be curious. Reconstruct our past. Influence our future.
