Discovering the Archaeologists of Africa Survey

Hello. You are invited to participate in the Discovering the Archaeologists of Africa project.

This project aims to bring a general perspective on who works in African archaeology and the ways that archaeology is done in African countries.

In this first stage of the project, we are asking people to complete a short survey that asks questions about employment in archaeology and academic provision. It will take approximately five to ten minutes to complete the questionnaire.

Your participation in this study is completely voluntary. There are no foreseeable risks associated with this project. However, if you feel uncomfortable answering any questions, you can withdraw from the survey at any point.

It is very important for us to learn your opinions.  Your survey responses will be strictly confidential and data from this research will be reported only in the aggregate. Your information will be coded and will remain confidential. If you have questions at any time about the survey or the procedures, you may contact Kenneth Aitchison at 0044 7803895033 or by email at

We would appreciate as many people as possible contributing as possible – so please send this link – – to any colleagues who you think could help. Thank you very much for your time and support.
