Archaeology for All

The theory and practice of community archaeology

A national conference at the University of Manchester

3-4 November 2006

http://www.arts.manchester.ac.uk/umfac/archaeologyforall/

Conference programme and booking form now available.

* What is Community Archaeology?
* What are the challenges and opportunities?
* What makes archaeological projects special and unique to their community?
* Does archaeology for all have a future?
 
All these questions will be explored in this major national conference in November 2006 organised by the University of Manchester and the City of Manchester, who have together taken a leading role in developing community archaeology.

The conference provides an opportunity to explore:
* what are the social, economic, tourist, educational and regenerative benefits of community archaeology?
* how people can get involved in their own community projects
* the role of the media
* how to attract funds
* the role of the professional, amateur enthusiast and volunteer
* what is the future for community archaeology?

This dynamic and innovative conference will enable all involved in community archaeology to present ideas, share examples of best practice and identify common problems and solutions and explore how archaeology for all might be an integral part of community life, generating a sense of pride of place and ownership about common heritage.

There will be a variety of papers, workshops, presentations and live link ups and local groups are encouraged to hold exhibitions and displays. This conference really provides opportunities for all ages to participate.

Who should attend?
 
* The local community and community archaeological groups
* The general public
* National organisations with a commitment to community archaeology
* Professionals working in community and educational archaeology
* Academics interested in archaeology and heritage management
* Officers, Elected Members, Policy Makers and Members of Parliament

The Conference will be held at the Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama, The University of Manchester. There will also be interactive workshops for children at the Manchester Museum on Saturday: 10.00 - 12.00 and 1.00 - 3.00.
