Who We Are


We have five core aims in our constitution:

  • To advance the study and practice of archaeology;
  • To promote the education of the public in such archaeology;
  • To conduct and/or communicate the results of relevant research;
  • To advance public understanding and care of the historic environment;
  • To act as a forum for debate on archaeological issues

Our three main areas of activity are to encourage participation in archaeology, support and enable archaeological scholarship and skills development, and to act to protect London’s historic environment.

CBA London comprises of heritage professionals, interested members of the public, academics and students – thus representing the multi-faceted nature of archaeological activity in the city and its environs.

In addition, most local archaeological and historic societies are affiliated members, and some are represented on the Board of Trustees.
