Prof Caroline Malone
Caroline Malone is Professor of Prehistory at the Queen’s University Belfast, where she has taught for 12 years. Educated at New Hall Cambridge, she completed her degree in Archaeology and Anthropology.
She completed her PhD at Trinity Hall Cambridge on the prehistory of Sicily and Southern Italy, and then took up the post of Curator at Avebury stone circle with English Heritage in 1985. She then became Inspector of Ancient Monuments, covering the eastern counties of England before taking up a university lectureship at Bristol. In 1996 she moved back to Cambridge as a Fellow at New Hall, and to run Archaeology for the University’s Continuing Education department, also filling the role of Editor of the journal Antiquity. In 2000 she was appointed at Keeper at the British Museum, and following restructuring, returned to Cambridge as Senior Tutor of Hughes Hall. Since 2007 she has lived in Cambridge but spent much of the year teaching in Belfast.
In collaboration with her Archaeologist husband, Simon Stoddart (who teaches at Cambridge and specializes in the Etruscans) Caroline has co-directed archaeological projects in Scotland, Umbria, Lazio, Sicily and Malta since 1983, exploring prehistoric sites and producing publications, museum displays and training students. The projects have focused on landscapes, early economies, burial practices, prehistoric art, and monument building. Most recently a major European funded project (FRAGSUS) has enabled exploration of Malta’s ancient cultures and their response to changing environments.
