Sheffield Archaeology launches its Strategic Board

The inaugural meeting of our Strategic Board was held on 31 October 2016

The Department of Archaeology Strategic Board met for its first official meeting earlier this week. Our Strategic Board is designed to provide an annual forum for strategic discussion between the Department and key external organisations in professional archaeology and allied fields.
We welcome input from an external audience to enable us to align our future contribution more closely to the evolving needs of the cultural heritage professions and seek your perspectives and feedback on activities conducted in pursuit of our aims for excellence in archaeological education and world-leading research.
The Board includes a small group of professionals in key regional and national positions in archaeological and archaeologically-affiliated roles, alongside staff members in key externally-facing roles including our head of Department (Dawn Hadley), Director of Research (Caroline Jackson) and External Engagement Officer (Lizzy Craig-Atkins).
Attendees at the meeting also included current staff and students as well as representatives from Peak District National Park, Wessex Archaeology, ArcHeritage, National Trust, Derbyshire County Council, Historic England and Oxford University.
