Members' area passwords

IfA members who have provided us we details of a valid email should have had their passwords to allow them access to the members’ area of the website (as previously publicised). This password is only necessary if you want to access the members’ only area, where we post the most recent JIS, issues of The Archaeologists, professional practice papers, and soon there will be meeting minutes and other features.

If you have lost your password you can go to to request a new one-use only password be sent to you. Please note that your username is your name in the format ‘first name surname’.

Please make sure you check your spam or junk folders if you think this hasn’t arrived. Once you have your temporary password you will be able to change it to something more memorable. Please note that when you do this you will not be redirected to a different page, but the password change will be successful and you should be able to see a link to the members area at the top of the left hand navigation bar.

If you have any further questions, or are having any problems with your password please email
