Event Details

"Financing Archaeology" will address directly the issue of funding in archaeology at a time when funding for research is in jeopardy.  By taking a long-range view of the ways in which archaeologists have dealt with limited funding (particularly government funding) in the past, the workshop will provide a historical background to current economic debates on funding and archaeology, tying the historical context firmly to the modern day.  It also will also provide a platform for discussing public engagement in archaeology, and the (economic) value of archaeology in a broader social and political context.  It is funded by a UCL Institute of Archaeology Research Network award.

This workshop is hosted by the UCL Institute of Archaeology History of Archaeology Network.  For more information, see http://www.ucl.ac.uk/archaeology/research/directory/historyofarchaeology_network.
