Professor Clive Gamble

Clive Gamble is an Emeritus Professor in the University of Southampton’s Faculty of Humanities where he leads interdisciplinary research projects and publishes widely on the archaeology of human origins.

He is a Visiting Professor in the Department of Geography at Royal Holloway, University of London, and has held positions at Universities in the United States and Australia.

Clive undertakes pioneering research into the social life of our earliest ancestors and in particular investigates the timing of global colonisation. His research has led him into many parts of the world, some of them remote, to answer the questions; when and why did we become the only species in human evolution to cover the entire globe?

Clive is a Fellow of the British Academy, the Society of Antiquaries and the Royal Anthropological Institute. When not thinking about the past and deep-history he is engrossed by cricket, cats and the garden.
