Institute of Archaeology (IAUB)

The Institute of Archeology of the University of Barcelona, approved by the Governing Council on October 7, 2020, is a research institute that gathers together a century-old tradition of research in archeology at the UB. It brings together the enormous potential represented by all researchers working in a wide range of archaeological specializations at our institution. The institute has a clear diachronic vocation since archeology embraces the first human manifestations and contemporary archeology, and has a multidisciplinary orientation joining researchers from different departments and schools: Faculty of Geography and History, Faculty of Fine Arts, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Biology, Faculty of Earth Sciences, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and Faculty of Chemistry.

The Institute of Archeology (IAUB) is initially made up of 96 researchers from the UB and formed by 7 Consolidated Research Groups (GRC) recognized and funded by the Generalitat de Catalunya in the SGR-2017 call. In addition, the IAUB also plans to consolidate and promote collaborations with other UB research institutes and institutions from Catalonia, Spain and worldwide.

The IAUB is an important space for collaboration and creation of synergies, made up of scientists from all phases of the research and teaching career. The institute aims to reinforce existing capacities and increase the visibility of archeology, turning it into a structure that allows placing the UB at the highest level in archaeological research.

The Research Plan is structured around four main areas of knowledge:

  • Experimental sciences and new technologies.
  • Materiality.
  • Societies in transition.
  • Archeology and society: heritage, museology and disciplinary history
