This issue of TEA marks a transition to new
editors. After six years of service to the EAA membership, Alexander Gramsch has
stepped down as Editor of TEA, and Lidka Żuk has stepped down as Assistant
Editor. As the new editors, we are excited about the opportunities to provide
the EAA members and European archaeologists with EAA news, announcements of
upcoming events, reports on research and heritage projects, and debate about the
future direction of your EAA and archaeological heritage.
With the 2015 EAA Annual Meetings in Glasgow fast
approaching, this issue includes a call to submit nominations for the European
Archaeological Heritage Prize 2015. Students contributing to medieval sessions
at the EAA in Glasgow can apply for one of four student travel bursaries for EAA
Glasgow conference, sponsored by MERC, the Medieval Europe Research Committee.
The EAA Executive Board (EB) recently
commissioned an Evaluation Report on the Function and Structure of the European
Association of Archaeologists. A link to the Evaluation Report, available to
members on the EAA website, will be sent separately to all current EAA members,
with an invitation for you to respond and give your thoughts and suggestions for
the future development of the EAA. A
summary of the report
is provided in this issue of TEA, on pages 4-5, followed by a
response from the
TEA's new quarterly publication schedule will aim
to provide you with information in a timely manner. You can contact us via
Autumn: deadline 15 October (after EAA meeting) -
published and circulated late October; Winter: deadline 15 December - published and circulated mid-January;
Spring: deadline 15 February - published and circulated late March;
Summer: deadline 15 May - published and circulated mid-June.
Please keep us informed if you are organizing
conferences or hear of any events interesting to EAA members. Short reports
about museum exhibits, upcoming conferences, funded PhD studentships, post-doc
opportunities, field schools, newly published regional syntheses, heritage
issues and new regional research projects are welcome. We look forward to the
next three years as your TEA editors.
