What is ArCPIG?
→ an interdisciplinary group for the exchange of ideas on methodology, techniques, know-how and expertise within the fields of archaeology, archaeological science, conservation, restoration, palaeontology.
→ a community of researchers and students who gather around the table to discuss and exchange ideas about the hows and whys of interdisciplinary studies.
Why did it start?
ArCPIG emanates from the need for communication between people from different departments who have access to different resources. If one does not know that something exists and that they can use it, it may never even cross their mind to seek it out.
