We are an organisation comprising archaeologists, botanists, civil engineers, geographers, geologists, soil scientists, zoologists and others interested in research into the problems of the Quaternary.

Our history

The QRA was founded in 1964 as the Quaternary Field Study Group and became the Quaternary Research Association in 1968.

Today, the QRA has an international membership of over 1000 people, with a large and thriving postgraduate student body.
