CIfA is the leading professional body representing archaeologists working in the UK and overseas.

Many different people are employed in conserving, managing and understanding the historic environment. Seeking the advice and guidance of a professional archaeologist ensures you receive the best possible service.

Our members are professionally accredited and skilled in the study and care of the historic environment. They sign up to a rigorous Code of conduct, professional development (CPD) schemes and complaints procedures to uphold competence and standards in archaeology.

CIfA champions professionalism in archaeology, which is good for practitioners, clients and protects the public. We do this by setting standards, improving careers and promoting best practice.
