Discovering the Archaeologists of Europe

This multi-national project is part-funded (75%) by the European Union’s Leonardo da Vinci Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP). It aims to profile the archaeological profession within Bosnia and Herzegovina through the collection and analysis of information on both archaeological workers and institutions involved in archaeological work and research. Gathered data will be compared and contrast the data collected with nineteen partner countries also participating in the ‘DISCO’ project.

Expected results of the project include:

– The publication of a report “Discovering the Archaeologists of Europe 2012-14: Bosnia and Herzegovina”

– Presentation and dissemination of the results of the project at various conferences and in peer-reviewed academic journals

– The provision of reliable data to aid policy and decision makers (both within and outside the country) with regard to the archaeological sector within Bosnia and Herzegovina on issues such as workforce demographics, training & education and equality issues.
