International Association of Landscape Archaeology (IALA) is a non-profit association aiming at promoting interdisciplinary research in the field of landscape archaeology. IALA will provide a platform for archaeologists, cultural and earth scientists and researchers from neighbouring disciplines to present and discuss results from this broad field of landscape research between the sciences and humanities. Building on the tradition of the previous Landscape Archaeology Conferences held in Amsterdam in 2010, in Berlin in 2012, and in Rome in 2014, IALA has been officially launched 23-25 August 2016 during the 4th international Landscape Archaeology Conference in Uppsala, Sweden. At  LAC2018 in Newcastle/Durham in the UK, the 2nd General Assembly was held.

IALA aims at values of higher interdisciplinary education, expert and scientific research with emphasis on young scientists and mentors and explores possibilities of use of European funds for higher education purposes. The activities of the Association are directed toward mutual collaboration of all scientific institutions, professors, teachers, assistants and young scientists in the European Union area and wider.

In order to establish a long-term collaboration between all researchers in this interdisciplinary arena IALA’s mission is to bring together all people involved in landscape research with a multi-disciplinary agenda. IALA aims to bridge the divide between sciences and humanities through higher education of young people, publications and supervising and promoting bi-annual conference organisation in order to establish a long-term sustainable development in interdisciplinary Landscape Archaeology. As the first step to fulfil this intention, IALA invites you to join the Association, become its active member in contributions, and/or be informed on a regular basis about the activities of the Association.

We congratulate Sjoerd on his election!
