This report presents a summary of the outcomes and lessons learned during the CBA’s Community Archaeology Training Placements project. In the four years to 2015 the project provided 51 year-long work placements in community archaeology. These were delivered in partnership with archaeology organisations across the UK.
The report describes the project’s success in developing a wide-reaching network of highly skilled community archaeologists, and in demonstrating the success of workplace learning. It discusses how the project enhanced relationships between community groups and professional archaeologists across the UK, demonstrated the many benefits of community archaeology and showed that there is an ongoing need and demand for specialist community archaeologists.
