London Anthropology Day (LAD) is a FREE annual university taster day for Year 12, 13, FE students, careers advisers and teachers.
#LAD2019 took place on Saturday 29 June 2019. Watch this space for details of the 2020 event!

London Anthropology Day is free to attend. The event is held at the British Museum‘s Education Clore Centre. On the day, participants get to learn what anthropology is about, the types of careers anthropologists do, and gain hands-on experience of what it is like to study the subject at university.

Lecturers from universities across Britain provide interactive workshops on biological and social anthropology. To get an idea of the workshops that were on offer this year, take a look at the LAD2019 programme and LAD2019 workshop descriptions. You can also browse the Guide to participating universities at LAD2019. At London Anthropology Day, students are able to learn about the various specialisations of participating universities, explore the museum’s ethnographic galleries and interact with volunteers who are currently studying anthropology.

The event is free and open to Year 12, 13 and FE Students, Careers Advisers, teachers, parents and anyone interested in learning more about anthropology.
