We are pleased to announce that the details for the 9th Experimental Archaeology Conference have been confirmed. Information will be published here as it becomes available, and on this year’s hosts UCD’s conference website.
In 2015 the 9th Experimental Archaeology Conference will be held in Dublin, Ireland for the first time. This event will be co-hosted by UCD School of Archaeology, University College Dublin and the Irish National Heritage Park at Ferrycarraig, Co. Wexford from Friday 16th through to Sunday the 18th of January.
The first two days of the conference will be held at UCD’s Moore Auditorium and the UCD Centre for Experimental Archaeology and Ancient
Technologies at University College Dublin. Oral papers, posters presentations and demonstrations will take place from 16th-17th of January.
On the final day of the conference there will be a field-trip to the Irish National Heritage Park where a range of experiments and Ireland’s most visited prehistoric and historic reconstructions will be explored.
The programme features papers on aspects of experimental archaeology and pedagogy; on experiments and experiences in houses and dwellings; on embodied skills and knowledge in craft skills, and on environment, food, cooking and society in the past. Posters will be presented at the end of oral paper sessions, giving poster presenters the chance to introduce their work to the audience directly.
Registration is now available on the UCD website.
