Centre for Community Archaeology
The Centre for Community Archaeology at Queen's University undertakes outreach activities with local communities across Northern Ireland and in places such as Malta and Vietnam. The centre enables volunteer adults and school children to participate in archaeological fieldwork projects through community-based excavations, while facilitating the involvement of local people in the study of their local heritage. The centre is aligned with the Belfast Young Archaeologists' Club and with the Ulster Archaeological Society. The former offers young enthusiasts the opportunity to learn more about archaeology through monthly meetings and fieldtrips, while the latter has a long-standing relationship with Queen's and hosts lectures, fieldtrips and fieldwork events.
Conference: 20th-21st Oct
