    ‘Sustainability’ is a concept that suffuses the present. Policy initiatives
    require ‘sustainability’ as one of the criteria by which projects are judged. In
    recognition of their role as interpreters and custodians of the past,
    archaeologists are one of the many groups contributing to the creation of
    ‘a sustainable historic environment’ and ‘sustainable communities’.
    Accordingly, sustainability is a concept that we perhaps need to incorporate
    into our activities as educators of future good citizens and into our training
    for the profession of archaeology. This paper seeks to address this issue,
    particularly in the light of Themes and Sessions relating to both
    sustainability and education at WAC8, but where the link between them remains unexamined.
