The International Experimental Archaeology Conference encourages the exchange and sharing of new work in experimental archaeology. It facilitates the discussion of recent developments within the ever-growing community of experimental archaeologists, archaeologists, primitive technologists, interpreters, open-air museum affiliates, and interpreters.

Experimental archaeology encompasses controlled scientific experiments as well as a vast array of other closely related activities. Although an archaeological experiment must be hypothesis driven, the insight gained through activities that are not as scientifically structured including experiential archaeology and primitive technology can be equally informative. The true value is realized when the results of research are related back to the archaeological record, enabling the creation of a cohesive and insightful interpretation which would be impossible to obtain solely from original artefacts.

Experimental archaeology demonstrations by conference participants are welcome on the Friday evening if they can safely take place indoors or Saturday afternoon if they should be outdoors. Please mention on registration if you are interested in demonstrating something.
