Linda Hurcombe attended the international ‘Yesterday Today: Bronze Age connections in a modern world and presented a paper 'The Archaeology of Experiment’

The conference formed part of the European Interreg IVa "Two Seas" project, ‘BOAT 1550 BC’, and was organised in collaboration with the Dover Bronze Age Boat Trust and coincided with the travelling exhibition ‘Beyond the Horizon: Societies of the Channel and North Sea 3,550 Years ago’.

As Linda’s paper focused on the scope of experimental archaeology it was a great opportunity to promote the work of OpenArch and the Dialogue with Science workpage to a new audience.
