The Day of Archaeology 2014 is coming!

The Day of Archaeology 2014 will be held on Friday 11 July!


We are looking for people working, studying or volunteering in the archaeological world to participate with us in a “Day of Archaeology” in July 2014.  The resulting Day of Archaeology website will (and already does!) demonstrate the wide variety of work our profession undertakes day-to-day across the globe, and help to raise public awareness of the relevance and importance of archaeology to the modern world. We want anyone with a personal, professional or voluntary interest in archaeology to get involved, and help show the world why archaeology is vital to protect the past and inform our futures.

How You Can Help

We are looking for archaeologists who are able to document their day and send it to us to publish here on the Day of Archaeology website. You can do this through any medium that you are comfortable with, be it writing, filming, recording or photographing your day.

If you can’t make the date in July 2014, you can still contribute up to a week before or after the Day of Archaeology itself.  If you would like to take part but don’t feel confident writing a blog or uploading photos, audio or film, please get in touch with us at the email address below, and we will help.

How to Sign Up

You can register your interest and email address through our Eventbrite page.  We’ll then contact you nearer the time with log-in details and passwords, as well as further instructions on how to participate.

You can also find out more about exactly what to do for the blog on the ‘Contributors Guidelines‘ page.
