The School is delighted to congratulate Professor Ian Ralston, Abercromby Professor of Prehistoric Archaeology,  on his election to the Academia Europaea Council.  

Academic excellence

The key criterion for election to the Academia is ‘sustained academic excellence in the candidate’s field’: membership is, therefore, highly competitive and follows a rigorous peer review selection process.  

The Academia Europaea (formed in 1988) is the pan-European academy of science, humanities and letters, with a membership of over 3500 eminent scholars, drawn from all countries of Europe, and all disciplines, nationalities and geographical locations.
