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 (dj715@york.ac.uk) is heading up ‘impact’ while Harald Fredheim (lhf506@york.ac.uk) 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 adoptingarchaeology@gmail.com 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.

If you would prefer to print the survey and fill it in by hand, please download the PDF version below.
