5: The Institute of Archaeology - The Realisation of a Dream
When Sir Mortimer Wheeler founded the Institute of Archaeology in London 50 years ago, his hope was that it would provide a laboratory for the study of civilisation. But no one in 1937 could have foreseen how a new generation of archaeological scientists would bring their skills to bear in their constant search to unravel the mysteries of Man's past.
Malcolm Billings visits the Institute to discover exactly how young archaeologists are, in Wheeler's phrase, 'digging up people'.
