Critical mass: working together for a better archaeology

Posted on November 24, 2015


Chartered Institute for Archaeologists and the Council for British Archaeology held a joint conference in October called Critical Mass: working together for a better archaeology. It aimed to

‘…bring together practitioners, volunteers and organisations to think about how we can all work together for a better archaeology. Combining inspirational talks with workshop discussions covering a range of topics from funding and training, to communication and citizen science, we are keen to make sure that everyone with an interest in archaeology takes part.’
