Campaign to Save British Archaeology

Bringing together academics, professionals and enthusiasts to halt the closure of university archaeology departments across the United Kingdom.

Archaeology is under threat. In recent years, archaeology departments in universities across the UK have increasingly been threatened by cuts and the prospect of closure.

This is not just bad news for archaeologists and those who wish to study archaeology. Archaeology is for all of us.

Our campaign brings together professionals, academics and enthusiastic members of the public to halt the cultural vandalism that puts our shared heritage and Britain's world-class reputation for archaeological expertise at risk.

Our Aim

  • Halt the closure of university archaeology departments across the United Kingdom.

How will we achieve this?

  • Demonstrate the importance of archaeology to protecting British and world heritage.

  • Ensure the UK remains at the forefront of scientific research and development.

  • Inspire a new generation of archaeologists to address the shortage of skilled workers highlighted by the Government.
