Australian Archaeology in Profile 2015: A Survey of Working Archaeologists

This survey profiles professional archaeology in Australia and aims to develop an understanding of our discipline and how it is changing. The survey targets demographic, employment and professional activities data. This survey builds on data collected in surveys undertaken in 2005 and 2010 to chart longitudinal trends in professional archaeology in Australia. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

Who should complete this survey? This survey is designed to be as inclusive as possible and recognises the use of archaeological skills in a broad range of fields. Participation in this survey is voluntary. It should be completed by anyone who:

  • used archaeological skills in paid employment during 2014; and
  • works in Australia, or is based in Australia and works overseas.
