YORKSHIRE.- The University of York's historic King's Manor is hosting a European photographic exhibition depicting the day-to-day work of archaeologists.

The public exhibition Working in Archaeology, which runs from 9 January to 6 March, features photographs by Belgian photographer Pierre Buch and reflects the different and varied activities of modern archaeological practice.

Brought to York by the Archaeology Data Service at the University’s Department of Archaeology, the exhibition opened at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris in November and will be shown across Europe this year.

The photographic exhibition is part of an EU Culture Programme funded project - Archaeology in Contemporary Europe (ACE) - which aims to promote contemporary archaeology at a European wide level. The Archaeology Data Service at the University of York is the lead UK partner in ACE.

Professor Julian Richards, Director of the Archaeology Data Service, said: “Working in Archaeology suggests answers to questions such as: What is an archaeologist? What do they do? The exhibition explores the diversity of the periods studied, the objects discovered, the tools used, the techniques involved and the many different ways of working and relating stories about the past to the public.”

Established in 1996, York’s Archaeology Data Service supports research, learning and teaching with freely available, high quality and dependable digital resources.

The University’s Department of Archaeology was recently recognised with a Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education – an award given biennially for "work of exceptional quality and of broad benefit either nationally or internationally".

The free public exhibition runs from 9 January to 6 March at the King’s Manor, Exhibition Square, York and is available to view weekdays from 9.30am to 5.30pm.
