CIfA2019 Archaeology Conference
On Friday 26th April, Peter McKeague (Historic Environment Scotand) and Katie Green (Archaeology Data Service) will give be giving a talk entitled 'Dead Man's Chest: Historic Environment Data Archive Centres and MEDIN (Marine Environmental Data and Information Network)' as part of the Offshore Development: Creating a Legacy for Marine Archaeology session at the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists Annual conference in Leeds.
This session will run from 11:30 to 15:30.
The theme for the CIfA 2019 conference will provide a forum for delegates to discuss and explore ideas around social value, public benefit, and the creation of knowledge.
It offers the opportunity to think about legacy and how the work we undertake now will impact on future generations – from inspiring future careers to learning lessons from our failures. We also want to consider how a multitude of stakeholders - archaeologists, policy makers, clients, the public - value our discipline: financially, politically and intellectually and to think about how effective we are in communicating that value through the stories we tell.
