The department of Archaeology of Ghent University is composed out of five research units which perform archaeological research with a focus on different time periods.

For the prehistory and medieval historical periods, several research topics with a specific focus on the coastal area are studied. It concerns the following themes:
- An archaeological survey of the land-sea transition zone at Doelpolder Noord: impact of sea level rises on the palaeolandscape and human occupation from Prehistory to the Middle ages;
- Long distance raw material distribution in the Mesolithic of the southern North Sea basin;
- The late medieval and early post-medieval settlement of Middelburg (Flanders);
- Medieval Bruges and its associated ports. A landscape-archaeological approach to the Zwin-debate;
- A multidisciplinary investigation of the consumption of ceramics in the Zwin-Scheldt estuaries during the 15th - 18th centuries AD.
