Cambridge's world-class research in archaeology has been recognised as a conspicuous player on the world stage by the 2015 Shanghai Archaeological Forum, (SAF).

Martin Jones, (Head of the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Cambridge) received a research award for his work on 'The origin and early spread of Chinese millets' while Senior Fellow of the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, Colin Renfrew (Lord Renfrew of Kaimsthorn), was given a lifetime achievement award.

A further McDonald Institute Senior Fellow, Norman Hammond, was also recognised for his work at Cuello in northern Belize.

Cyprian Broodbank, Disney Professor of Archaeology and Director of the McDonald Institute said: "I warmly welcome this affirmation of Cambridge Archaeology's leading international role at a time when archaeology as a global field has never mattered more."

This was the second SAF awards ceremony, which took place at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences in Shanghai.  Designed as a global initiative dedicated to promoting the investigation, protection and utilization of the world’s archaeological resources and heritage, it serves as an international platform for the illumination of archaeological research and its significance and relevance to the world today.
