Past Forward is a full 2-day Conference organised by Merseyside Archaeological Society, in partnership with the Museum of Liverpool, to be held on the 8th and 9th October 2016 and will celebrate the Society's 40th birthday.
Since the formation of the Society in 1976 much has changed in the state of knowledge of the archaeology of Merseyside. Using a combination of short lectures, workshops, discussion groups and tours, the Conference will review the ways in which archaeology on Merseyside has evolved over the last 40 years. It will look back on the Society's work with local communities and institutions within and outside Merseyside to advance archaeological research and deliver a series of successful projects. The role of Merseyside Archaeological Society and other local society engagement in research, advocacy and governance in archaeology will also be explored. The Conference will also look forward into the next decade to envisage the challenges and opportunities that await and how the Society might have to adapt in order to build on its past achievements.
Merseyside Archaeological Society has brought together a prominent group of speakers with local, regional and national interests who will describe their experiences of working with the Society and how these successful collaborations might continue over the coming years. Attendees will also have the opportunity to describe any memories of their involvement with the Society and outline their vision for the future of archaeology on Merseyside.
Details of the programme, speakers and booking forms are available at the MAS website http://merseysidearchsoc.weebly.com/events-and-field-trips.html and bookings can also be made via eventbrite.
