CIfA2017 Archaeology: a global profession

Annual training event and conference

19 to 21 April 2017, Newcastle University

Sponsored by Towergate Insurance.

Make sure you keep up to date with the conference news via our eBulletin and on Twitter #CIfA2017.

Bookings now closed, but you can still come along on the day. Social evenings are fully booked, but you can still come along to the venues.

Our 2017 conference will provide an opportunity for heritage professionals to discuss, consider and learn about archaeological practice on a world stage. For CIfA2017 we have identified three broad themes (professionalism, protection, discovery) and will have half-day sessions within a traditional paper format, discussion / panel seminars or CPD workshops. The themes are simple, broad and flexible, and accommodate an exciting programme.

Archaeology should be without borders, and professional archaeology must be without borders. We hope the conference will provide an opportunity to report on some of the progress made and to explore both the opportunities and difficulties of professionalising across borders.
