Incorporating the Ancient History Documentary Research Centre and the Australian Centre for Egyptology 

The Ancient Cultures Research Centre (MQACRC) undertakes collaborative research on cross-cultural interaction in ancient cultures from Western Europe to China. It concentrates not only on the history of the societies concerned, but on the languages they used, and has a special focus on the close study of physical artefacts from antiquity.
