Save the IAA

The Institute of Antiquity and Archaeology is under review at the University of Birmingham, which is likely to have devastating consequences for all courses within the institute. It will involve the removal of many members of staff, and the complete closure of some departments. As students, academics and interested parties, it is our responsibility and right to stand up for what we believe. If we didn't believe our course was valid and worth saving, then we wouldn't have paid to be here. The grounds under which the University has proposed the review are narrow-minded and ridiculous. United we must fight to save the IAA!

  • Ian Mackey After all the good work carried out by the IAA already and the fact that Archaeology is getting a (justifiably) higher profile due to their work and that of Vince Gafney ... what might have possessed the Uni to treat anyone so badly particularly having the incredible work carried out by the department televised (albeit from 2012) - it has given me a thirst for more and I would rather not move to Birmingham knowing colleagues and staff members are being abused.
