Institute of Archaeology 75th anniversary in 2012

Videos of the 75th Anniversary Debates with key public and professional figures are now available to view on the Institute website.

The series of five 75th Anniversary Debates followed a 'Question Time' format where panels of key public and professional figures considered a series of major themes relating to the role of archaeology in the modern world.

The Institute is very grateful to CgMs Consulting for their sponsorship of these events which form part of the range of activities being organised to celebrate the Institute's 75th anniversary.

The next anniversary event 'Archaeology Showoff' takes place on 24 April.
