Being a dis/Abled enabled public archaeologist I researched attitudes towards Dyslexic undergraduate and postgraduate students in UK Universities within the main models of social and medical models of dis/Abilities. I need to warn you that some of the content may be distressing to some, but the facts remain, within both my BA and MA dissertations I found a small proportion of people in archaeology are totally opposed whether intentionally or unintentionally to any-one who is dis/Abled being in archaeology at all. Hence Enabled Archaeology was born to stem the flow of at times prejudicial and negative acts towards dis/Abled enabled participants in archaeology to-day.
