News: 7th Experimental Archaeology Conference dates confirmed 11-12 Jan 2013

We are pleased to announce that the 7th Experimental Archaeology Conference will take place on Friday 11th-Saturday 12th January 2013.

The 7th Conference will be hosted jointly by the School of History, Archaeology and Religion at Cardiff University and St Fagans National History Museum, Wales. 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.


Papers on any any topic related to experimental archaeology are welcome, but those that touch on the relationship between experimental and experiential approaches are particularly welcome.

Academic posters as well as oral papers are welcome, and this year we are pleased to announce that there will be a prize for the best student poster.

Expected schedule:

  • July2012 – Call for Papers
  • Early November 2012 – Papers announced
  • November 2012 -January 2013- Registration
  • 11-12 January – Conference


The Experimental Archaeology Conference aims to attract a variety of contributors, from established academics to students at all levels, to museum professionals and craftsmen practicing or interested in recreating past techniques. As such this year’s conference organisers intend to keep attendance costs to a minimum, and will confirm these later in the year.
