Archaeology and Conservation Education Roundtable
Alice Boccia Paterakis and Thomas Roby
In February 2017, the GCI convened a roundtable of educators from universities in the United States and the United Kingdom, where both conservation and archaeology are taught at the graduate level, along with representatives of US professional organizations in both fields. The objective of the roundtable was to identify how to better integrate the activities of the two fields and thereby improve professional practice through curriculum reform and training, as well as put forward recommendations to achieve these goals.

Protective Shelters for Archaeological Sites
23-27 September 2013
Edited by Zaki Aslan, Sarah Court, Jeanne Marie Teutonico, and Jane Thompson
At this symposium, which used the archaeological site of Herculaneum as an open classroom, the MOSAIKON partners worked with the British School at Rome and the Herculaneum Conservation Project to bring together heritage professionals from the Mediterranean region, along with other international colleagues, to discuss issues and challenges related to archaeological shelters.
The symposium proceedings are being made available to further the discourse regarding protective shelters for archaeological sites and to offer heritage practitioners guiding principles when faced with sheltering decisions.
