Landward Research has been commissioned by the Higher Education Academy History, Classics and Archaeology subject centre and English Heritage to conduct a survey of archaeological specialists in order to provide trend data in this part of the heritage sector.
It will build upon the results of the Survey of Archaeological Specialists 2000 and provide data suitable for workforce planning. In doing so it will also identify the economic impact of the current economic climate upon their work and indicate any areas where potential skills losses might affect the capacity of the archaeological profession to provide specialist advice. This will then allow priority areas for the delivery of training to be identified.
Landward Research are currently constructing a database of archaeological specialists who will be invited to contribute to this survey. If you, or your organisation, are interested in contributing, please mail firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the database.
The invitation to contribute will be circulated later in February, and the final report will be produced by the end of March 2011.
Landward Research Ltd is Registered as a Data Controller with the Information Commissioner’s Office. All data received will be used only for research purposes. No information that could be used to identify any individual or organisation will be available to any other organisation.
