Archaeology Audience Network

The Archaeology Audience Network (AAN) is a project that brings together many of the UK’s leading archaeological organisations to build the most accurate picture to date of the audiences that public and community archaeology attracts and engages with in England and make it freely accessible online. With this information in hand, Network partners will work with grassroots community organisations to develop new public and community archaeology activities that reflect the needs and interests of new audiences, deliver training in gathering and using audience data, and produce new best practice guidance on how to collect and apply audience data in future activity.

Funded by the Culture Recovery Fund from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and awarded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the project is being delivered in partnership between MOLA, The Archaeology Data Service, The Council for British Archaeology, DigVentures, Oxford Archaeology, Wessex Archaeology, and York Archaeological Trust.

ADS is involved in the collation, analysis and management of the audience data.
