Post-Medieval Archaeology Congress 2017
Fri, 31 Mar 2017, 15:00 – Sun, 2 Apr 2017, 15:30 BST
The Society is building on the success of the 50th Anniversary Congress in Sheffield with a similar event in Hull as it celebrates being UK City of Culture. Our conference forms part of the Roots and Routes season, a theme highly relevant to post-medieval and historical archaeology. Hull, on the east coast of England, has a long tradition of networks with Europe and is an ideal venue for this international gathering of post-medievalists to share their interests. Further information is available on our website.
