The Heritage Partnerships Team is very happy to promote this new student-run event series, created by the Oxford Archaeological Society and Graduate Archaeology at Oxford.


IDEA aims to recognise current ethical issues in archaeology and highlight the voices of marginalised groups in archaeological research. Each week we’ll hold a participant driven discussion to find ways to build towards a more inclusive and ethical future for the field.IDEA aims to recognise current ethical issues in archaeology and highlight the voices of marginalised groups in archaeological research.
