Everyday ethics: an introduction to professional ethics and developing your ethical knowledge - as archaeologists, we make daily ethical decisions. This module gives you an introduction to professional ethics and explains how the CIfA Code of conduct, standards and guidance help us to avoid acting unethically. It also gives some tips on how to develop your ethical knowledge and sets out a series of everyday ethical scenarios you might encounter and asks you to consider how you might react. You can go through the case studies on your own but it might also be beneficial to discuss them with your colleagues. Duration: 20-25 minutes (free for CIfA members; £5 for non-members)

    Advanced Metal Detecting for the Archaeologist (AMDA) will present its 15th class offering in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, on June 25-27, 2021. The Valley Forge National Historical Park (National Park Service) will be the local partner for this class.

    AMDA is certified under the Register of Professional Archaeologists continuing professional education program. The goal of the class is to provide professional archaeologists with an understanding of current best practices in metal detecting and to provide the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with a variety of devices from a variety of manufacturers.

    The course is offered as 24-credits. There are 8 hours of classroom work and the field portion is 16 hours.

    Fees will be $375.00 for 24 credits. At this class, both the classroom instruction and the fieldwork will be at Valley Forge National Historical Park.

    The field sessions will contribute to ongoing research for the National Park Service. Valley Forge is beginning a three-stage project at the purported (map projected) location of the winter quarters of the artillery under General Knox. These winter quarters were cabins like the other winter camps at Valley Forge. The project area will cover 12-16 acres of meadow.

    PLEASE NOTE: The class dates are subject to change dependent on Covid-19 issues. AMDA will structure the class to limit the classroom and follow NPS and our internally developed Covid-19 policies.
