Research in palaeoanthropology at the University of Sheffield builds on the department’s unique combination of strengths in palaeolithic archaeology, biological anthropology, human and comparative anatomy, primatology and hominid palaeontology. The expertise amongst our staff ranges from behavioural and morphological studies of primates and fossil hominids to the study of palaeolithic culture and Pleistocene environmental evidence. Department staff have active palaeoanthropological field research projects in Britain, Europe and Africa, and there are well developed links between the department and the museum and education centre at Creswell Crags, one of Britain’s most important Ice Age archaeological sites.
