Stanley Nwosu

  • PhD Student- Archaeology

I received my BA in Archaeology from Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Nigeria and my MA in Archaeology from University of Ibadan, Nigeria in 2014 and 2019 respectively.


My research interests includes historical archaeology, settlements, cultural resource management, conflicts and museum studies, heritage.
My research seeks to examine how conflicts impacted pre-colonial societies in the forest zones of West Africa and how these societies interacted with their environments to modify aspects of their physical and cultural landscapes.

My first field experience started in 2012 and this marked the beginning of my journey in archaeological research. Over the course of my undergraduate and graduate studies, I participated in major Archaeological Projects in different locations in Nigeria including the Ife-Sungbo Archaeological Project, Old Oyo Archaeological Project etc. I was employed as a Field Archaeologist for the Edo Museum of West Africa Art (EMOWAA) Archaeological Project Phase 1 which involved collaborations from the British Museum, Cambridge Archaeology Unit and Wessex Museum UK.  I have also worked as a Contract Archaeologist carrying out excavations for PhD researchers in US and European universities who had their research areas in Nigeria.
