You can help to keep the pressure on government and ensure that your local MP and counsellor is aware of how important heritage is to your community as part of CBA's Power of Archaeology campaign.
This campaign aims to get MPs and local Councillors more closely engaged with archaeology and heritage issues, raise the profile of threats posed by cuts and planning policy reform, and make sure that decision-makers understand what archaeology does for us all and why people care passionately about it.
We need your help to do this but we want to make it as simple as possible to do, so the CBA have pulled together a range of tools, including guides, template letters and key facts about the discipline, to make sharing your passion for archaeology as easy as possible.
The Council for British Archaeology, Home Front Legacy 1914-18 project has made great progress over the past 12 months.
The ‘Map of Sites continues to be updated with new red pins, each one highlighting a site relating to the First World War home front, with 70 sites being added between March and April 2016. With over 1500 sites we are now starting to build up a picture of how the First World War affected people throughout the country.
Find out how recording your local First World War sites can help to build up a picture of the home front in the latest Local Case Study on Barnsley
If you are interested in caring for your heritage, the Adopting Archaeology project is about you - so we really want you to get involved!
Together with the Department of Archaeology at the University of York, the CBA is investigating how local community groups can best be supported in their efforts to take care of their local heritage. The Adopting Archaeology project focuses on both the impact and sustainability of local volunteer involvement in caring for heritage. David Jennings (firstname.lastname@example.org) is heading up ‘impact’ while Harald Fredheim (email@example.com) takes charge of the ‘sustainability’ strand.
As the project continues, this webpage will be updated with news and opportunities about how you can get involved. In the meantime, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be added to our mailing list, or follow us on Twitter where we are: @adoptarchy, @folkdeejay and @haraldfred.
Take a look at Harald’s initial call for participants to help design tools to support your efforts to care for your heritage (http://new.archaeologyuk.org/news/5844-adopting-archaeology). Similar opportunities will be extended to a wider range of groups in the Autumn. Please do get in touch if you are interested in participating.
Please do fill out the Caring for Your Heritage survey, to help us understand who you are and how we can best support you through our project.
