Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology


MAA is a research institution in our own right, receiving major research grants from the European Research Council, the Leverhulme Trust, the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Economic and Social Research Council.

We also regularly host visiting researchers from all over the world, who would like to work with the collections as part of their research.

Researchers, students, members of interested communities and the public may use images and data from the collections for academic, educational and creative purposes under a Creative Commons license (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0).

Please note however that permission generally needs to be obtained from copyright holders for works by living or recently deceased artists, makers and photographers.
