Welcome To The IAI

The IAI is the representative all-island organisation for professional archaeologists working in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The aim of the IAI, through the representation of our members, is to advance and strengthen the profession of archaeology in Ireland. Our vision is that we will have a vibrant and sustainable archaeological profession that actively contributes to the protection of our archaeological resource, which in turn contributes to the social and economic wellbeing of the entire community. To achieve our aim and vision, we are committed to a range of long term measures, including:

The implementation of our 3-Year Plan 2015-2018
Promotion and development of the IAI Codes of Professional Conduct
Facilitating the Continuous Professional Development of our members
Active engagement with all the stakeholders involved in the management and protection of our archaeological resource
Increasing public awareness and understanding of our archaeological heritage
I hope that you enjoy our website and that you find the information contained here useful and informative.
