  • to act as a focus for CIfA members interested in, or working in, London
  • to promote London archaeology positively within the structure of our profession
  • to ensure that the needs of London’s archaeology are fully integrated into CIfA activities

C ‘Peasy’ D SERIES – London Archaeologists

What is the ‘C Peasy D’ Series?: Enjoy half an hour of informative and educational presentations with half an hour to discuss the topic and put your questions to industry leading experts.

Why attend:
• Learn about topics that directly influence archaeology in London but that fall outside of the usual training regimes for most units. Get informed about how and why things are done the way they are.
• Get an official CIfA certificate for 1 hour of CPD.
• Meet fellow archaeologists working in other London units. A chance to meet up and chat in a convivial place.
• Expand your horizons – for anyone working in London archaeology, CIfA members and non-members.

Topics are designed to be of particular interest to archaeologists in the PCIfA and ACIfA grades looking to gain some wider knowledge about commercial archaeology in London. People of all levels are urged to attend and contribute to the discussion.

(The London Group is still actively seeking an 'accessible' venue. If anyone has any suggestions, please email groups [at] - subject Accessible London venues)
