Editorial

The Spring issue of The European Archaeologist continues the discussion of the role of archaeology, heritage and the public, with a Debate essay by Cheryl Benard concerning the recent public activism undertaken to preserve the underwater city of Pavlopetri, and the contributions of ARCH (Alliance for the Restoration of Cultural Heritage) in this effort.

This debate, which is of importance to archaeologists, heritage managers, and museums, and most likely critical to the continued public support for both archaeological research and the presentation and preservation of archaeological heritage, will continue at the upcoming DGUF conference Archaeology and Power. Positionings for the future of researching the past, which will be held from 5-8 May 2016 in Berlin and will be attended by EAA President Felipe Criado-Boada and others. In our opinion, archaeologists must not wait for an invitation to participate in discussions about at-risk heritage. We must act, either individually, or by pushing our national level organizations and, at the EU level, pushing the EAA, to take action. As Cheryl Benard clearly articulates, action by the public usually carries more political influence than do words by academics.

Viktória Kiss announces the launch of From bones, bronzes and sites to society, a new multi-year research project in the Institute for Archaeology of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.

María de los Ángeles Utrero Agudo gives an update on the progress of the research project
Archaeology of the Hispanic churches of the 10th century. This multi-year project, involving many
researchers and institutions, seeks to combine the analysis of knowledge transmission with analysis of the media of transmission.
