TIFAs were imagined because the interdisciplinary nature of archaeology creates, more than in other disciplines, a permanent need to acquire new skills and knowledge at all career stages. During these training events, the addressed topics can be theoretical or highly practical, for example, excavation techniques, sample analyses and data analyses, or even as a roundtable to disseminate knowledge on a particular subject. At some events, you can bring your own data or samples to work on to create working examples during the training event.



The training events are open to the prehistoric archaeology and paleoanthropology community at all career stages. The trainer(s) can be internal or external to ICArEHB, can be archaeologists or other scholars teaming up with archaeologists. ICArEHB will deliver certificates of participation.
