Event Details

This day conference aims to draw together a variety of experiences of working on some of the most exciting current collaborative projects and to discuss how to maximise the outputs and impact of such projects. There will be two themed sessions, each with presentations from invited speakers, followed by a practical discussion session drawing out issues identified in the preceding papers and suggesting ways forward. The intention is to open up debate and to involve as many commercial archaeologists, consultants, students and academics in this discussion as possible. The discussion sessions will alsoprovide an opportunity to meet and individuals in the different archaeological sectors and hopefully tofoster new partnerships for collaboration.


Thanks to the support of our sponsors, we are able to offer up to three travel bursaries specifically aimed at commercial archaeologists. To apply, please contact the RIG by emailing Lianne Birney (lianne.birney@archaeologists.net) giving your affiliation and a short statement explaining why you would like to attend.
