Call for papers: 7th Experimental Archaeology Conference, UK


We are pleased to confirm the call for papers for the 7th Experimental Archaeology Conference UK.


Date: Friday 11 January 2013 to Saturday 12 January 2013

Location: Cardiff University and St Fagans National History Museum, Wales

Supported by: EXARC (the international association of archaeological open-air museums and experimental archaeology)


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 range of topics covered at previous conferences has been diverse, ranging from work on taphonomic processes, artefact replication, the theoretical basis for experimental work, and living experiments.

The 2013 conference will be held in two contrasting settings. The first day at Cardiff University will focus on papers and discussion. The second will be held at St Fagans National History Museum and will offer the opportunity for further papers, and the chance to explore one of Britain’s oldest open-air museums as it begins a series of archaeological developments.

The conference is an opportunity for new and established researchers to present their work and benefit from dialogue with a wider network of experimenters.

Deadline for abstract submission: November 2012

Papers are welcome on any topics related to experimental archaeology, but those which touch on the relationship between experimental and experiential approaches would be particularly welcome.

Posters are also welcome and there will be a prize for the best student poster.
