The Material Culture and Data Science research group are hosting an
Experimental Archaeology Conference, to be held at the UCL Institute of
Archaeology on Thursday 9th November 2006. The Conference will be free and
open to all.
The aim of this Conference is to promote experimental archaeology as a valid
academic approach for answering archaeological questions; one that can
enhance our interpretations about the past in ways other methods cannot.
Papers and posters are requested on research-led experimental archaeology in
any relevant field e.g. taphonomy, pyro-technology, architecture. We
particularly welcome contributors with a background in archaeological theory
pertaining to experimental archaeology; whether for or against!
‘Experiential’ or ‘what-I-did-last-summer’ reports are discouraged as we
hope to show how experimental archaeology can contribute meaningfully to
the wider discipline.
The deadline for the submission of:
- Oral/Poster presentation
is Monday 16th October 2006. Although an indication of interest would be
Bastian Asmus, Fatma Marii, Oli Pryce
