Women in Archaeology 2014 Archaeology is steadily becoming a more female profession. In 2012-13, 46% of archaeologists in the UK were women; fifteen years before, only 35% were. The majority of archaeologists aged under 40 are now women, most students studying archaeology are female and it is expected that in the next ten years women will make up the majority of the archaeological workforce. To celebrate International Women’s Day, Councillor Julie Gunnell the Lord Mayor of York is inviting participants to "Women In Archaeology 2014", a one-day conference in York on Saturday 15 March 2014 to discuss the role of women in archaeology. The conference will begin with an evening reception on Friday 14 March at the JORVIK Viking Centre. On Saturday 15 March, a full day international conference will be held with a formal dinner at the Mansion House, the official residence of the Lord Mayor. York Archaeological Trust is currently running a major international project, Discovering the Archaeologists of Europe 2014
