South Leeds Archaeology Summer Conference 2016


Community Archaeology – The Future for Community Volunteer Archaeologists
Oakwell Hall, Birstall, Nr. Leeds

South Leeds Archaeology have been planning a summer conference and we now have a full programme which will provide for a most interesting and thought provoking day.
If you are involved with or have contact with Archaeology Community Volunteers, this will be an opportunity to share ideas on how the different sectors involved in
practical archaeology can use this pool of knowledge and, in many cases, considerable experience.

We would strongly advise you to book early as conference places are limited.
