Last year the CBA bursaries scheme, training 10 future community archaeologists, picked 9 middle class, white young women and 1 middle class, white young man. So how, exactly, will the profession attract people from all sections of the community with such a narrow demographic of CAs? This is were the funding has gone last year and will go this year. How about some support and funding, for those that need some training, that are already doing the job and shown dedication and commitment?
