The AlA was established to promote the study of industrial archaeology and to encourage improved standards of recording research, conservation and publication. It aims to assist and support regional and specialist survey and research groups and bodies involved in the preservation of industrial monuments. It holds conferences, seminars and training weekends for its members. It also endeavours to represent the interests of industrial archaeology at the national level, and has been responsible for a nationally accepted policy statement on research priorities in industrial archaeology. The AlA monitor and comment on listed building applications.

The AlA obviously has broader interests than mining history and archaeology, but articles on these subjects are regularly published in the &£39;Industrial Archaeology Review&£39;. In the past, the AlA have run conferences in conjunction with NAHMO. One held in 1989 dealt with the standards of interpretation and presentation of mining sites. Papers from the Conference were published in a special issue of &£39;Industrial Archaeology Review&£39;, Vol.XII (No 1), Autumn 1989, entitled &£39;Metalliferous Mining&£39;

Visits are arranged to surface remains of mines when the Annual Conference is at a suitable location, and references to mine sites are included in the Conference Guides. In the past for example, an AlA conference was held at Newton Abbot, Devon and visited ancient mineral working, granite quarries and tin, copper and iron mines.
