London Anthropology Day (LAD) is a FREE annual university taster day for Year 12, 13, FE students, careers advisers and teachers. #LAD2018 will take place on Monday 9 July 2018.

Online booking for London Anthropology Day has now closed, but we would still love to see you at LAD2018! We welcome walk-in attendees, as we do have workshop spaces remaining.  Please arrive at 10am on the 9th July 2018 at the British Museum, and go to the ‘Not booked?’ desk in the Clore Centre.

UPDATE: Check out the the LAD2018 programme and LAD2018 workshop descriptions to start thinking about the workshops you’d like to book into! Also, browse the Guide to participating universities at LAD2018.

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. 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.
