The CIfA Buildings Archaeology Special Interest Group was reformed in 2003 to act as a forum for promoting the archaeological analysis, research, interpretation of standing structures.
The group aims to promote the analysis of the built environment and to raise awareness of approaches and methodologies to address the wider role of buildings archaeology with other professionals in built heritage sector by:
- advising CIfA council on issues relating to standing buildings and being consulted during the drafting of new recording guidelines and heritage legislation.
- Producing regular newsletters (two per year)
- Articles in the CIfA magazine 'The Archaeologist'
- Training events (seminars, guidance and conference sessions)
- Developing links with associated heritage professionals
- To provide a forum for addressing the wider role of buildings archaeology within the built heritage sector

Membership is free to CIfA members, and £10 for non-members.
