Draft Meeting Report


The Getty Conservation Institute convened the Archaeology and Conservation Education Roundtable February 13–14, 2017 at the Getty Villa and Getty Center. Participants in this two-day meeting included educators in conservation and archaeology from five universities in the United States and the United Kingdom, where both fields are taught, along with representatives of US professional organizations in conservation and archaeology.

The aim of the meeting was to identify ways to better integrate activities of professionals in conservation and archaeology, thereby improve practice through curriculum reform, training and outreach, and to put forward recommendations and actions to achieve them.

This draft report summarizes participant presentations and the discussions that followed, which lead to breakout groups that helped formulate recommendations regarding education, and communication and outreach.
