The programme of more than 60 papers and posters on global historical/post-medieval archaeology is now available on the SPMA website: http://www.spma.org.uk/events/pmac2018/ where you can also book your place at the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology's annual congress, taking place at the University of Bristol and SS Great Britain, Bristol, on Friday 23 - Sunday 25 March.
Bristol has long formed part of global networks of maritime trade and industry. The city has operated as a regional and international trading port for more than 1000 years, developing trade with North America and the Caribbean from the 17th century and playing a major role in the transatlantic slave trade. Bristol’s place in global networks continues to shape the city’s identity into the 21st century.
This congress is open to all researchers at any stage of their career, whether academics, students, commercial or community archaeologists, to report recent research on any aspect of post-medieval/later historical archaeology.
