Mark Boyle and Joan Hills founded the Institute of Contemporary Archeology in 1966. ICA was created to give their projects a uniqe setting and for several practical reasons in order to obtain necessary permissions.

On February 6 and 7, ICA invited to archaeological excavations on two different sites in London. One group of 30 people, including the composer Cornelius Cardew and the artist Gustav Metzger, was brought to a closed factory for Shepherd's Bush garden sculptures. After the first layer of brick was removed, fragments of animals, ornaments and torsos appeared, the contemporary archaeologists discovered that the area was full of ice-capped plaster statues. After three hours of digging, each of the participants was asked to submit five items to be included in an exhibition. A second archaeological group consisted of students from Watford Technical College, who stuck a needle through a map of London. The needle's point of reference turned out to be a relocated parlor garden where students were assigned to collect items they found interesting. The findings were assembled, marked and displayed at an exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London.

The exhibition is on view from April 20 through September 2
