The 2020 Archaeology Days across Europe will be held on 19, 20 and 21 June 2020. The 2019 Archaeology Days across Europe were a great success, with events at more than 1,130 sites in 18 European countries, as well as participation by 14 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
We invite you to participate in the 2020 Archaeology Days across Europe. Participation is completely free of charge. Registration is done through the website of the event Journees-archeologie.fr. Each country has a page, and an organiser space in which organisers can register and publish their programme.
In addition, organisers can download communication tools to promote their event. We provide trailers, posters, flyers, press kits, and press releases, which organisers can adapt to their event, and to their own graphics systems.
Registration on the website will take place in mid-February 2020. We will inform you as soon as registration is open. In addition, a new graphic charter will also be available for the 2020 edition.
The objective of the event is to reach as many people as possible. Therefore, proposed activity(ies) should aim to attract an audience that does not usually visit places dedicated to archaeology. To do this, making the venues free and at the same time offering exceptional activities should attract new audiences and mobilize the media. In addition, a specific and festive event aimed at both adults and families should attract members of the public who are not necessarily accustomed to visiting archaeology-themed events or places.
For example, making exceptions by opening spaces traditionally closed to the public can encourage people. Opening a preventive archaeology site, a restoration workshop or archaeological reserves is a good way to bring archaeology professionals together with the public. People appreciates being able to meet professionals, and to see and understand how they work. This also shows that archaeology is an operational sequence that does not stop at the excavation site alone.
