Booking is now open for the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology's annual Congress, which this year will take place at the University of Hull, Friday 31 March - Sunday 2 April 2017: http://www.spma.org.uk/events/pmac2017/
The SPMA is building on the success of its 50th Anniversary Congress in Sheffield with a similar event in Hull as it celebrates being UK City of Culture. Our conference forms part of the Roots and Routes season, a theme highly relevant to post-medieval and historical archaeology. Hull, on the east coast of England, has a long tradition of networks with Europe and is an ideal venue for this international gathering of post-medievalists to share their interests.
There will be events in the city on Friday afternoon and evening, followed by parallel sessions of papers at our Congress partners, the University of Hull, all day Saturday and on Sunday morning. During Sunday afternoon we will offer plenary talks also open to the public on the theme of Roots and Routes, with a city tour as an alternative.
Social activities will also take place over the weekend, and there will be an optional guided trip on Monday 3rd April to historic sites in East Yorkshire. The full conference programme will be available on our website shortly.
