Welcome on the webpage of the DFG Research Training Group (RTG 1878) ‘Archeology of Pre-Modern Economies’, a joint project of the Archaeological Institutes of the University of Cologne together with the University of Bonn.

Our top priority is to provide PhD students of outstanding excellence an optimal environment for their early career and for making impact.
Seminars, panel discussions, workshops are intended to create an inspiring and productive environment with excellent networking opportunities. Invited lecturers and distinguished Mercator Fellows guarantee highest international standards and world wide visibility.

All the PhD research projects focus on economic issues grouped into  ‘economic networks’, ‘settlement centers and their hinterlands’, ‘sacred institutions as economic units’ respectively.
