The History of Discovering the Archaeologists of Europe

Discovering the Archaeologists of Europe is a project that
looks at employment and training issues in archaeology and which now involves
22 organisations across 20 European states,.

This paper will look at the history of the project, where it
originated, what the predecessor work was and how the first Disco… project was
put together. That project, which gathered and disseminated information for
twelve states between 2006-08 was a new approach to comparing archaeological
practice transnationally, and this paper will look at why the European
Commission thought this was important enough for them to provide funding, the
results of that project and how they were used.

Finally, the paper will examine how the partnership for the
previous project has developed and expanded for the current project, and it
will also consider how Discovering the Archaeologists of Europe has influenced
global research.
