Editorial

The Winter Issue of The European Archaeologist includes two pieces on a topic of relevance for
European archaeologists and the public: the relationship between archaeology and the public in times of social change. Our new EAA President, Felipe Criado-Boado, has written a letter to introduce himself and his vision for the future of the EAA and the need for greater engagement with current crises and events. In the Debate section, the 'Tübingen Theses on archaeology' formulated at last year’s conference of the German Society for Pre & Proto-history (DGUF conference) in Tübingen, presents interesting suggestions on the interaction of different stakeholders in archaeology. Emerging forms of media technologies require new ways of thinking about how knowledge is spread, and active engagement by professional archaeologists is called for. This discussion is relevant for all European archaeologist. The debate will be continued at this year’s DGUF conference in Berlin from 5th to 8th May 2016 (see Announcements).

This issue also contains tributes to Willem Willems and Jon Humble, whose contributions to heritage will be sorely missed, as well as reports on an EAA-SAA joint conference "Connecting Continents", and the Second Anthropocene Working Group meeting, both held in November 2015, and announcements regarding the newly established Slovak Association of Archaeologists and publication of the second issue of the e-magazine Historic England Research.

Remember, 15 February 2016 is the deadline for paper and poster submission for the 22nd EAA
Annual Meeting in Vilnius! You can submit your abstracts and find more information at EAA2016
