UK Experimental Archaeology Conference 2013

Event date: 
Friday, 11 January, 2013 to Saturday, 12 January, 2013
Organised by: 
Cardiff University

We are pleased to announce the first Call for Papers for the 2013 UK Experimental Archaeology Conference to be held at Cardiff University and St Fagans National History Museum, Cardiff, on 11 – 12 January 2013.

The Experimental Archaeology Conference is an annual event first held at University College London in 2006. It provides a forum for experimental archaeologists and related researchers to present the results of ongoing and completed projects. The topics covered at previous conferences have been diverse, ranging from work on taphonomic processes, artefact replication, the theoretical basis for experimental work, and living experiments.

The conference is an opportunity for new and established researchers to present their work and benefit from dialogue with a wider network of experimenters. This year papers are invited on topics covering the breadth of experimental archaeology, but those which touch on the relationship between experimental and experiential approaches would be particularly welcome.

This year’s conference is also supported by EXARC, the ICOM Affiliated Organisation representing archaeological open-air museums and experimental archaeology.

The first day of this conference will be held at Cardiff University and will focus on papers and discussion. The second day will be hosted by St Fagans, and will offer more papers as well as the chance to explore one of Britain’s oldest open-air museums.

To submit a proposal for a paper please send us your contact details, paper title and short abstract.
