The School of History, Classics and Archaeology was delighted to hear that Dr Manuel Fernández-Götz, Reader in Archaeology, was recently re-elected to the Executive Board of the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA) during the annual conference of the association in Barcelona.

The EAA is the largest body of archaeologists in Europe, with over 11,000 members on its database from 60 countries worldwide, working in prehistory, classical, medieval, and historic archaeology. The 2018 annual meeting was held in Barcelona with around 3,000 members, all of whom have the opportunity to vote in the election.

Dr Manuel Fernández-Götz was first elected to the Executive Board at the annual meeting held in 2015 in Glasgow, and he will now serve for the 2018-2021 period. This will include attendance of the regular board meetings, membership in different committees and evaluation panels, and being part of the scientific board of some future annual conferences.

Dr Fernández-Götz said, "The EAA is the most important forum for European archaeology and I am delighted to serve on its Executive Board for another three years".
