Miranda Jane Aldhouse-Green FSA (née Aldhouse, b. 24 July 1947) is a British archaeologist, who is Professor of Archaeology at Cardiff University. She earned a degree at the Cardiff University, her MLitt at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford in 1974, and a PhD from The Open University in 1981. Aldhouse-Green was a member of the faculty at the University of Wales, Newport between 1993 and 2006, being appointed Professor of Archaeology in 1998. She previously held appointments at Worthing and Peterborough Museums and the Open University in Wales. Aldhouse-Green has been a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London (FSA) since her election in November 1979. She is a former Vice-President (2002), then President of The Prehistoric Society and has been included in Who's Who since 2004.
Her research interests are Iron Age and Romano-Celtic, particularly Gallo-Roman iconography and sacrificial activities. A report from Universities UK (EurekaUK, June 2006) cites Aldhouse-Green's research into understanding the Celts as one of the "100 major discoveries, developments and inventions", by academics throughout the UK, to have transformed the world in the last 50 years.
