Later European Prehistory Group

The LEPG welcomes everyone interested in aspects of the European Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Ages. For more than forty years, the LEPG has been a core activity within the Division of Archaeology, and key members have included Grahame Clarke, David Clarke, John Coles, Glyn Daniel, and Colin Renfrew.

In addition to our lecture series, the LEPG annually hosts a symposium for early-career researchers—MPhils to terminal-year PhDs—to share their ongoing research with their peers and receive constructive feedback.

The group aims to appeal broadly not only within the field of prehistory but also within heritage and classics, and to provide an informal and friendly setting for the exchange of ideas, dissemination of research results and the discussion of current topics of interest. Professionals, students and academics are invited to contribute.
