The Icon Archaeology Group is for all those concerned with archaeological conservation in the UK
The Icon Archaeology group is one of the largest in Icon, currently with nearly 400 members.
A committee of ten members, elected from the membership, meets three or four times a year currently online.
We represent Icon on several groups including CIfA, Society for Museum Archaeologists, the Archaeological Archives Forum and the Icon group chairs forum. Some committee members also take part in the Icon initiatives for environmental sustainability, emerging professionals, inclusion and diversity, and communications and Icon strategy planning sessions.
Each of the ten committee members has a specific role, described on the committee page. Members serve for three years, with extension of another three years following current Icon group regulations.
The focus of the committee in recent years is providing a forum for events, currently online. Past events are listed on the events page and regular reviews of events appear in Icon News. The other major focus is the fourth edition of First Aid for Finds; updates will be posted on the First Aid for Finds page.
We always welcome ideas from the membership for events and currently, online tours of exhibitions or projects. In the past, the group hosted a training event each year and it is hoped that in the future, this type of activity will continue.
