The Discovering the Archaeologists of Europe 2014 project arranged a session at the European Association of Archaeologists' Annual Meeting in Plzen in September 2013.
Discovering the Archaeologists of Europe is a project supported by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union that is bringing together participants from nineteen European states to identify how archaeology is defined as a profession in those countries. It is seeking to find out what they do, how they are qualified and rewarded, and most importantly, how to maintain the skills of professional archaeology in the post-2008 economic situation we all find ourselves in.
This session seeks to expand discussion beyond the project participants, to bring together anyone who has anything to say about employment and training in professional archaeology. Contributions are sought from all countries in Europe – and beyond – and from all sectors of archaeology, whether applied, academic, fieldwork focussed or administrative, looking to stimulate discussion on how archaeology can be delivered and sustained.
The following papers were presented
