The CIfA are looking for exciting, innovative and engaging sessions for the 2016 CIfA conference. The conference will comprise a three-day programme, with traditional sessions, seminars and CPD workshops. The conference will explore the broad theme Archaeology in context.

They hope to turn the spotlight firmly on archaeology and archaeologists – what is the role of archaeology in society, or within the wider landscape that cultural heritage occupies? How should archaeology be embedded within the teaching curriculum, or within sustainable development projects?  They are looking involve a diverse audience to explore archaeology and its contribution to a whole host of differing contexts…

Archaeology is context is a very broad theme – but the reason for that is simple. The conference organisers want to hear your ideas about the role that archaeology has across the many sectors it can sit within and are very keen to develop a programme which is driven not just by practicing archaeologists but from those who work with, benefit from or fund archaeological investigations. If you know of community groups, clients, teachers, museum curators (the list is endless!) who you feel might be interested in contributing, please pass this call on.
