The urban archaeology network: urban archaeology in 2020!

We will talk about practising urban archaeology in 2020 along the following main themes:

• challenges around preserving archaeological remains in situ;
• pressures on time, resources and funding;
• competition with many other public interests – better transport, new housing, more tourism;
• new techniques in modelling, researching and excavating urban sites;
• increasing pressure from politicians, funders – and from archaeologists themselves.

Please join our session. [Read More…]
