At the EAA conference in Glasgow, a group presentation got some rather heated discussion going. Particpants decided to maintain the momentum by founding ArchaeologistsEngage and launching a campaign. The campaign is a world-wide challenge to promote improved communication between archaeology professionals and the public. Find it here: http://archaeologists-engage.org/
As part of the campaign, the group have set up a challenge where they call to archaeologists worldwide to sign-up to partake in at least one interaction with the public in 2016, by stepping outside their usual professional activities. You can sign-up for the challenge here: http://archaeologists-engage.org/challenge.html
The social media presence with the identifier #AEngage can be found on https://facebook.com/ArchaeologistsEngage, and https://twitter.com/ArchsEngage
EXARC gladly suypports this campaign and we hope that you will consent signing up to our challenge, and will be very grateful if you could help us spread the word.
