We are looking for people working, studying or volunteering in the archaeological world to participate with us in a “Day of Archaeology”. The resulting Day of Archaeology website will 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, on Friday 29 July, 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 about, filming, recording or photographing your day.
If you can’t make Friday, you can still contribute up to a week after the Day of Archaeology. If you would like to take part but don’t feel confident writing a blog or uploading photos/film, please get in touch with us and we can help.
How to Sign Up
Email us if you would like to take part, and we will be in touch about how to submit your entry.
As of 12pm on July 12th, account details have been sent via email to everyone who has expressed an interest in signing up and contributing to the project. We now have 244 people willing to document their day, and we’ve even had the first post from Maev Kennedy (Guardian archaeology correspondent) which will go live at 00:01 on the 29th. If you want to contribute, you can still sign up, just email email@example.com
