Under the mission statement, Archaeology for All we aim to deliver our strategy through four main objectives:
- advocacy and
These are set out in our current strategy for 2010–15 titled 'Making Archaeology Matter'.
The Council was founded in 1944 for the 'safeguarding of all kinds of archaeological material and the strengthening of existing measures for the care of ancient and historic buildings, monuments, and antiquities' and to improve public education about archaeology.
The organisation has grown over the years and is now a charity registered in England and Wales (no 287815) and in Scotland (no SC041971). It is also a Company Limited by Guarantee, registered in England No. 1760254.
The Council is run by a board of trustees on behalf of the membership.Trustees are elected by the members and report back to members at twice-yearly meetings held at various locations around the UK.
