Chartered Institute for Archaeologists 

The Chartered Institute for Archaeologists is the leading professional body representing archaeologists working in Europe.


It promotes high professional standards and strong ethics in archaeological practice, to maximise the benefits that archaeologists bring to society. It is the authoritative and effective voice for archaeologists, bringing recognition and respect to the profession.


CIfA is open to applicants from anywhere in the world and from any archaeological discipline.

Accredited CIfA professionals have demonstrated technical and ethical competence in archaeology by means of an examined portfolio of work in whichever areas of archaeology in which they work. They have agreed to comply with the CIfA Code of conduct (including a mandatory CPD requirement) and CIfA Standards, they act impartially, and are accountable under professional conduct procedures.
