From July 2020 we will be welcoming two Archaeology Master’s Students to MOLA Headland Infrastructure as part of an exciting MA Studentship opportunity, funded by Highways England and delivered in conjunction with the University of Reading.

The award-holders will spend the first 12 weeks of their programme (July-September 2020) on a placement with our specialists and will then enrol on the University of Reading full-time MA Archaeology.

Each award focuses on a different topic, but both will focus on material excavated during our archaeological excavations on the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Road Improvement Scheme:

The effects of sub-sampling Roman pottery assemblages from large infrastructure projects

Integrating scientific analysis into the study of Iron Age and Roman copper-alloy objects from large infrastructure projects

Each award covers:

  • Tuition fees for new UK/EU students (£7,735)
  • £5,000 during 12-week placement
  • £11,500 stipend over the duration of the master’s course

The deadline for applications is 1 May 2020 and applications will open shortly.

The deadline to apply for either Master’s Studentship is 1 May 2020; to be considered you first need to submit an application for the full-time MA Archaeology programme and receive an offer.
