CFParticipation: What’s Public Archaeology 2015 About?

Digital Humanities Now - Thu, 07/10/2014 - 13:00

Public Archaeology 2015, seeks to explore different kinds of archaeology producing different kinds of engagement with different kinds of public. Certainly within archaeology itself, public archaeology, or ensuring public engagement with archaeological themes, practice or results, is central to the future development of the field.

…The project will facilitate 12 public archaeology projects over the course of 2015, half led by archaeologists, half by non-archaeologists. The whole process is open for people to get involved in shaping how it runs; regular posts on individual projects will be available for discussion from 16 July onward. See you there. – James Dixon
