Caroline Malone (born 10 October 1957)[1] is a British academic and archaeologist currently Professor of Prehistory at Queen's University, Belfast School of Natural and Built Environment, and formerly Senior Tutor of Hughes Hall, Cambridge, UK. Prior to this she was editor of Antiquity and Keeper of the Department of Prehistory and Early Europe at the British Museum. She began her career as curator at the Alexander Keillor Museum at Avebury.

Her research interests include fieldwork in peninsular Italy (since 1983), Malta (since 1987), and Troina in Sicily (since 1997), and currently in Britain. Specific topics include archaeological theory and practice; Neolithic and Copper Age societies of Britain, Europe, Mediterranean, and Italy; island societies and island archaeology; landscape and settlement archaeology: cultural resource management: artefacts and technology: fieldwork and survey. Malone headed a successful European Research Council bid for an Advanced Research Project entitled FRAGSUS which commenced in 2013. This project collaborates with institutions in Malta and investigates the environmental impact of early colonists in Malta, and excavated at the Neolithic temple sites of Ggantija, Santa Verna, Kordin III and Skorba as well as Tac Cawla and the Bronze Age site of In Nuffara in an attempt to explored chronology, economy and landscape.

Malone graduated BA at the University of Cambridge in 1980, holds an MA in Archaeology and Anthropology, and was awarded a Ph.D in Archaeology by Cambridge University in 1986. She is married to Cambridge archaeologist Simon Stoddart with whom she has directed fieldwork since 1983 and has two children.
