I thought people might be interested in this; it looks like it might be a good course.

I don't have a beard, a stripy jumper, or a tendency to drink vast quantities of beer... apparently I'm not a proper archaeologist
Does anyone know any good sources for archaeology PhD funding?

Careful, it might be hallucinogEeEe**33nnnn..
Roman Abramovitch? It might have to be related to the heritage of Chelsea though.
Hello Mesolithic Viking,

The main funding bodies i can think of include:
- The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)
- The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)
- NERC/ESRC
- English Heritage?

There are probably a lot more but these are the ones that I have come across. I know somebody and have heard of others that have managed to obtain funding from businesses and companies etc that have a link in some way to the research they are doing.

Also I do not know about other Universities but Bradford has a bursary that you can apply for that pays the tuition fees for part-time post-grad research students - you have to reapply each year etc and I am sure they have just introduced a small maintenance grant? but whether this is a yearly sum or just a one off small amount I cannot tell you but I am sure that it would be on their website,

I hope this helps, good luck

Most universities, well a number, hand out some grants to students. Sometimes these are fees, share of fees or fees and income. You will need to contact any departments you are thinking of applying to and see what is available.

I have to say this Lampeter scheme seems to be a way to milk cash out of people.
