Historically, archaeology has been an inaccessible discipline for many marginalised groups of people. Although the field has arguably become more inclusive in recent years, particularly due to the vital interventions of individuals from underrepresented groups, such as disabled people, members of LGBTQIA+ communities, people of colour, and people from working class backgrounds, there is still much work to be done. This is especially the case for making archaeology more inclusive for disabled people, who are currently underrepresented in the field.
