British Museum staff are constantly engaged in new research all over the world, from archaeological excavations or studies with modern communities to applying new scientific techniques or studying objects and works of art.
Crossing different academic disciplines and parts of the world, our research provides new information and perspectives on the collection and the ancient and modern cultures it represents.

The British Museum supports a number of students registered in UK Universities to carry out new research on the collection and its context.
Most are supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Collaborative Doctoral Award Scheme. Others through the Leverhulme Trust and other supporters.
