<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title> <jats:p>High-spin states in the <jats:italic>N</jats:italic> = 128 nucleus <jats:sup>218</jats:sup>Th have been investigated following fusion–evaporation reactions, using the recoil-decay tagging technique. Due to the short-lived nature of the ground state of <jats:sup>218</jats:sup>Th prompt γ rays have been correlated with the <jats:italic>α</jats:italic> decay of the daughter nucleus <jats:sup>214</jats:sup>Ra. The level scheme representing the decay of excited states has been extended to (16<jats:sup>+</jats:sup>) with the observation of six previously unreported transitions. The observations are compared with the results of shell model calculations and within the context of the systematics of neighbouring nuclei.</jats:p>
