About the Committee:
The Academy Committee for Archaeology is the representative body of the main institutions involved in archaeology in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Its mission is:
To promote and support study and research in Irish archaeology primarily through its role in adjudicating on applications for Government-funded research excavation grants and for Academy archaeological research grants. To offer advice on policy matters relating to archaeology. To deal with matters of archaeological concern that may arise. For more information on the activities of the committee in its previous term, please visit the committee’s website:http://www.ria.ie/committees/archaeology/index.html
The Academy has recently adopted new terms of reference for all its Committees with the aim of assisting it to better deliver on its core mission of promoting research and scholarship. An important part of this plan involves the invigoration of its network of Academy Committees. It is intended that a key group of members of each of the Committees be chosen from an electoral register which will be based on a wide electorate of people with an interest in the Committee’s work.
The Archaeology Committee’s new term of office will begin in June.
