Archaeology

The Icon Archaeology Group has promoted high standards for the care and conservation of archaeological materials since 1976

The Icon Archaeology Group has a Twitter account: @IconArchaeology, which is maintained by the Communications Officers and Archaeology Group committee members. 

The aim of this social media account is to promote the activities of the Icon Archaeology Group, raise the profile of archaeological conservation on Twitter, and engage with conservators everywhere (in particular those who deal with archaeological materials).

We always love to hear about your archaeological conservation projects big or small; please tag us and #FindsFriday in your posts and follow us on Twitter to see what everyone else us up to and how exciting our jobs can be!
