Discussing the revised Standards and universal guidance for field evaluation, archaeological excavation, and archaeological watching brief. Wednesday 29 March 2023, 10am-12pm



Come along to this Zoom meeting and have your say! CIfA is circulating a consultation on the revised fieldwork Standards and guidance on Monday 27 February which will run for 6 weeks.

This meeting will be an opportunity to discuss some aspects of the consultation and to get your feedback and thoughts. To recap CIfA is updating and reformatting its suite of technical Standards and supporting guidance for archaeological practice to ensure the information is fit-for-purpose and applicable to all those engaged in archaeological work, wherever they may be based. This programme of work forms a key objective in the Institute’s 2021-2030 strategic plan and has involved restructuring the current documents, providing information that is universally applicable, and exploring different delivery mechanisms to promote greater accessibility.
