Archaeology and Heritage
An engagement with the past and with archaeology opens up a fuller understanding of modern life. Archaeology and cultural heritage studies are flourishing around the world and there is increasing awareness of the global significance of Japanese archaeology. The Sainsbury Institute’s major dogu project should result in greater understanding of the role of the past in contemporary Japan and elsewhere, enhanced international research networks, and new ways of engaging with the past. Through this and other projects, the Institute is creating a distinctive approach to our study of and engagement with the past, using the richness of Japanese archaeology to inspire innovative research collaborations that will make an impact far beyond the Japanese archipelago.
