*****Workshop on Looking to the Future of Medieval Archaeology*****

03.05.08

Institute of Archaeology, London

In 2007 the Society for Medieval Archaeology celebrated its 50th anniversary with a series of events that reflected on progress over that period. The aim of this workshop is to highlight the opportunities and challenges facing medieval archaeology over the coming decade, considering the various ways in which medieval archaeology in the future might build on the achievements of the last 50 years to allow this relatively new discipline to capitalise ever more effectively on its unique potential, linking, as it does, artefact and text, the ancient world and the modern, and lost and living monuments and evidence.  

Places at the workshop are limited. To ensure that the diverse interest groups within medieval archaeology are evenly represented, equal numbers of places are available for representatives of each of the following groups: the heritage sector (including museums and national agencies such as EH, Historic Scotland, Cadw etc.); the commercial archaeology sector (including freelance specialists); the university sector (including graduate students).

Particular themes to be addressed will include maximising the impact of development-led fieldwork; priorities for academic research; interdisciplinary integration; digital technology and the dissemination of results; and new challenges and opportunities in public outreach. Speakers will include Matthew Johnson, Paul Blinkhorn, Chris Cumberpatch, Chris Thomas, Kate Giles, Barney Sloane, Niall Brady, Carenza Lewis, Mark Redknap, Richard Jones, Naomi Sykes, and Mark Gardiner. As appropriate to such an attempt to define and steer the future of the subject, general discussion will be a key part of the day.

Attendance at the conference, including tea/coffee and lunch is free to graduate students, who are also eligible for bursaries of up to 30. If you are a member of the Society the conference registration fee is 20.00; and for non-members it is 30.00. Where applicable, please enclose a cheque made payable to 'The Society for Medieval Archaeology'.

A programme and booking form for the workshop can be accessed at: http://www.medievalarchaeology.org/conferences.htm

Many thanks
