The New Generation Special Interest Group (NGSIG) discussed these issues at the IfA Conference 2013. Thanks for finding us and joining the debate.
The New Generation Special Interest Group was formed in 2012 following a series of discussions and debates by a number of PCIfA grade members at the 2012 IfA Conference in Oxford. It became clear that there were many people within the institute, in the early stages of their careers in archaeology, who wanted to be more involved with the the institute and play a greater role within the sector as a whole.
The New Generation SIG aims to support archaeologists in the early stages of their career working in all aspects of the sector. We aim to achieve this by:
