Project Summary

We welcome the participation from people who are involved in the study and care of the polar historic environment, employed or voluntary, regardless of academic background or location. During the meeting, you will among other things have a chance to get acquainted with the Chair of the Polar Archaeology Network (PAN), Dr. Frigga Kruse, and members of the PAN Board. We hope to encourage a lively exchange on broad overarching topics such as ethical and professional standards and guidelines, international working practices, advocacy for archaeology to influence policy and decision-makers, special interest groups (e.g. finds, geophysics, information management, and more), career paths and professional development, training events and e-learning, networking and cooperation, and future events. Our goal is the cultivation of shared visions and productive relationships in the polar historic environment. We are therefore particularly looking forward to participants from the Social and Human Working Group.
