CBE awarded to Graeme Barker

last modified Feb 02, 2015 12:28 PM
Graeme Barker, former Disney Professor of Archaeology and Director of McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, has been appointed a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2015 New Year's Honours List for his services to archaeology.

 

Describing himself as “thrilled” to be awarded the CBE he said: “I changed to archaeology half way through my undergraduate degree at Cambridge inspired by meeting Colin Renfrew, then a research fellow, and was privileged to succeed him as Disney Professor in 2004. It has also been a privilege to work in archaeology, which has so much to tell us about what it means to be human. It is a team subject par excellence and in accepting the award I have felt very much that it celebrates the achievements of so many colleagues, and good friends from all parts of the world whose support has been so important to anything I have achieved.
