At ARCHE, we conduct some of the world’s most comprehensive analyses of human evolution
We are the first academic centre specifically focused on gaining a deeper understanding of ancient human migrations and the full story of the origins of people in our region.
Our mission is to foster research excellence through multidisciplinary projects that bring together leading international scholars and institutions in the field of human evolution, with a particular focus on two key regions: Australia and neighbouring Southeast Asia.
Our key research activity covers the following themes:
- Archaeogeochemistry and Geochronology
- Landscape and Human Co-Evolution
- Rock Art and Symbolic Material Culture Research.
