The European Association of Archaeologists (EAA) is a membership-based association open to all archaeologists and other related or interested individuals or bodies. The EAA currently has over 1100 members on its database from 41 countries world-wide working in prehistory, classical, medieval and later archaeology. They include academics, aerial archaeologists, environmental archaeologists, field archaeologists, heritage managers, historians, museum curators, researchers, scientists, teachers, conservators, underwater archaeologists and students of archaeology. 

The Association is a fully democratic body, governed by an Executive Board elected by the Full members and is representative of the different regions of Europe. At all times the EAA adheres to its Statutes.

The main forum for EAA members to interact is represented by the Annual Meetings.  These lively and well-attended conferences, held every September in a different country of Europe, are one of the highlights of the archaeological year.

The official language of the EAA is English, but if you have difficulties with English you can communicate with us in any major European language. 

The Association organises conferences and seminars and acts as an advisory body on all issues relating to the archaeology of Europe. The EAA Annual Meetings offer a unique opportunity for archaeologists from all over Europe and beyond to exchange ideas and opinions on archaeological practice and theory following the aim to contribute to a continuing discussion concerning the numerous identities and contexts of European archaeology.
