Evaluating Archaeology Research Network
There are growing demands for all parts of the public sector to justify their values and impact, reflecting a trend in public administration towards greater accountability and credibility in the allocation of funding. This pressure has increased since the economic crisis, with governments looking to make drastic budget cuts. The heritage sector is particularly vulnerable in this savage new order due to its poor state of preparedness and the inherent difficulties in ascribing value to heritage resources. This research network aims to intervene in these processes by generating data driven research that critically examines the value and impact of the heritage sector in the UK. This will lead to the creation of high profile research publications and resources for the heritage sector, as well as strengthening the skills base in qualitative and quantitative social research methods at the Institute. The network’s initial activities will focus on the organization of consultation events, focus groups and seminars; these will lead into a second phase of research based on designing, funding and conducting a large-scale national survey of public attitudes towards archaeology and the heritage sector.
