Archaeology Days across Europe 2019: a great success!

by Pascal Ratier (

On June 14, 15 and 16, the first occurrence of the Archaeology Days across Europe took place. Organized by Inrap, the French National Institute for Preventive Archaeological Research, it was a great success. In France, more than 660 places celebrated archaeology! The programme is still available on the website

We were joined by 17 European countries, resulting in programs presented at more than 1,160 locations in more than 18 countries in Europe! This confirms the public interest in archaeology. Fourteen UNESCO world heritage sites also participated in the Archaeology Days across Europe.

The next edition of the Archaeology Days across Europe will take place on 19, 20 and 21 June 2020. We would be very happy if you could participate in this event..

The Understanding Zooarchaeology I short course provides an insight into the theory and methods that can be used to understand animal remains in archaeology. This course does not require any previous knowledge of zooarchaeology.

The Understanding Zooarchaeology II short course allows participants to experience the whole range of knowledge and skills required by the discipline, with the opportunity to work with an actual faunal assemblage.

The courses are directed towards students, professionals, and enthusiasts from the wider public. The teaching will be delivered through short lectures, hands-on practical activities, and case-studies.
