Archaeological Practice and Society in the Mediterranean Final Conference


Archaeological Practice and Society in the Mediterranean is a three-year project led by ICHA Board Member Jaime Almansa-Sánchez.

The project delves into the concept of public archaeology in relation to archaeological heritage management. It raises different issues, including the relations of archaeology and cultural heritage with identity, economic impact, public policy, etc. The project approached these topics from an ethnographic perspective, including the perception of management among professionals, and its direct relation to citizens and visitors. It aims to provide in depth analysis of the topics and a series of resources that might be useful for archaeologists around the world that want to work, as well as for archaeological heritage managers and the wider public.

ICHA collaborates with more than ten professional organizations focused on archaeology and cultural management from around the Mediterranean on the organization of the Final Conference: Archaeological Practice and Society in the Mediterranean, scheduled for April 2021.
