The Event: #LAD2017 will take place on Thursday 29 June 2017.  

Book you place: booking for #LAD2017 will open on Thursday 10 May 2017 on this website.

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. Check out all the universities that participated in 2016, compare their undergraduate anthropology courses and read the 2016 event programme.

Lecturers from universities across Britain provide interactive workshops on biological and social anthropology. 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.
