National Archaeological Institute with Museum at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences hosts the 19th Heritage Management Symposium of the Europae Archaeologiae Consilium

Europae Archaeologiae Consilium (EAC) wants to make a contribution to the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, by organizing its annual Symposium on a topic which is closely related to the objectives of this initiative. It is appropriate to gather in Bulgaria, the country which is chairing the European Union in the first half of 2018.

The topic is: “Development-led archaeology in Europe. Meeting the needs of archaeologists, developers and the public”. In the 2018 Heritage Management Symposium, the idea is therefore to look at the topic of development-led archaeology from a different angle and open up a discussion between the heritage management officials, the developers, the archaeologists working in the field and the public. How can we meet the needs of these very different stakeholders and do we always need to? How do politics affect the archaeological heritage management and the different stakeholders? How can they in turn affect politics and politicians?

This topic is also relevant in view of the decision of the European Parliament and the Council to make 2018 the European Year of Cultural Heritage with the aim of raising awareness as well as drawing attention to the opportunities offered by cultural heritage. In other words, to reflect on the place that cultural heritage occupies in all our lives.

The Symposium will last one and a half days (22 and 23 March) and will consist of three presentation sessions followed by discussions – including questions and comments from the floor.

The Europae Archaeologiae Consilium (EAC) was founded in 1999. It is a democratic network of heads of national services responsible under law for the management of the archaeological heritage in the Council of Europe member states. The EAC therefore represents the managers of the historic environment and the associated cultural heritage.

The EAC is dedicated to the exchange of information between its members about standards and best practice related to heritage management.

The collective membership of the EAC is well placed to offer advice and guidance about all aspects of heritage management and to develop broad-based strategies for archaeological heritage management on the basis of professional expertise. The EAC functions in an advisory and consultative mode and liaises and develops links in this context with international organisations that have an interest in the methods and goals of heritage management.

Members:

Austria, Albania, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovak Republik, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom, and Bulgaria (from 22 March 2018).
