Die DGUF fördert seit mehr als 45 Jahren die Anliegen der Ur- und Frühgeschichte und angrenzender Wissenschaften. Sie trägt zur Verbreitung gesicherter und fundierter Erkenntnisse über die Archäologie und zur Weiterentwicklung der Rahmenbedingungen von moderner Archäologie in Forschung und Lehre sowie in Bodendenkmalschutz und -pflege bei. Die DGUF ist der mitgliederstärkste bundesweit tätige Fachverband für die mitteleuropäische Archäologie. Auch Nicht-Archäologen können Mitglieder der DGUF werden. Mindestens ein Mitglied des Beirates nimmt lt. DGUF-Satzung den Auftrag wahr, sich in besonderer Weise um die Belange der an der Archäologie interessierten Öffentlichkeit zu kümmern. / The German Society for Pre- and Protohistory is the largest German association active in the field of prehistory and the early historical period. Its members are not only archaeology professionals but also private citizens interested in the subject.
How are you supporting the idea of citizen science through various channels or activities?: 
Since the DGUF was founded in 1969 the position and interests of non-archaeologists play an important role for our society. At least one member of our Board has to focus on the interests of citizens (if possible the respective board member is a non-archaeologist). We are the only learned archaeological association in Germany that welcomes non-archaeologists as full members. We are publishing a monthly newsletter that can be subscribed by anybody and is read by more than 1.200 subscribers in the German-reading countries. A category of this newsletter is "Bürger und Archäologie & Citizen Science". We publish a journal and a monograph series - both appear as Platinum Open Access publications, thus allowing also citizens (who may e. g. live close to an excavation area an article is about) to be informed about "their" past. Our annual conferences 2015 and 2016 focused on the relationship between archaeology and society, see e.g. there: http://www.dguf.de/index.php?id=391 The DGUF does, however, not run own citizen science projects.
