Research Beyond Mitigation and Universities: Maximising the Impact of Community
So if you missed the IfA conference in glasgow there was a session 'Research Beyond Mitigation and Universities: Maximising the Impact of Community Involvement'. I recorded the talks and put them online if anyone is interested in the topics:

'Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer.'

edit- turns out I can't post more than one video at a time in BAJR. Oh well, I will post them one at a time. Sorry for all the posts in this thread


'Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer.' - Bruce Mann

Community engagement in archaeology is something which is often talked about, though often in isolation from the rest of the professional sector. As our profession evolves so it is now time to think outside of the box and recognise how communities and citizen science can have a central role in the work we do. This paper tells the story of how the minor misunderstood site of Blackhills in Aberdeenshire, damaged by forestry operations and presented to the local authority archaeologist as a headache to resolve, became a huge success through partnership working which delivered not only a nationally significant new find, but also one within a research context. The role of the local authority in enabling this opportunity is examined, with partners ranging from the local landowner and community, to local archaeological groups, professionals, and esteemed academics, to even a group of inspired artists. This paper demonstrates that community not only has a positive contribution to make to research, but can be used as an invaluable tool that delivers real benefits to the profession as a whole, and one that we would be foolish to dismiss in the future.
