The Centre for Battlefield Archaeology
Established in April 2006, The Centre for Battlefield Archaeology is the first facility of its kind and has earned a reputation as an international centre of excellence for the burgeoning study of the archaeology of battlefields and other manifestations of human conflict. The scope of research includes battlefields, memorialisation, military infrastructure, cultural resource management, etc. The Centre also produces the Journal of Conflict Archaeology which features papers on all aspects of conflict.
Scottish Centre for War Studies
The Scottish Centre for War Studies was established in 1995 to promote research in, and understanding of, war in all its aspects. It is based in the University of Glasgow. A wide-ranging group of scholars contribute to the Centre’s seminars and conferences, while a core team of staff from the Department of History teach the MLitt in War Studies. The research interests of this team stretch from medieval to modern times, covering military, political and cultural history.
