The organising committee invites oral and poster presentations from all areas of archaeological and environmental science but particularly around the themes of

  • materials, technologies and skills
  • landscape and climate
  • lifeways and subsistence
  • populations, relations and descent
  • heritage science
  • archaeological science in the commercial world

We encourage interdisciplinary contributions, as well as those that integrate archaeological science and cultural interpretations. This major international conference is organised by the Department of Archaeology and Conservation, Cardiff University and the Association of Environmental Archaeology.


The conference programme will start with a public archaeological science event and reception and then devote three days to presentations and discussions.

We will also be pleased to respond to informal enquiries (to be directed to the email address above).

Conference organisers: Penny Bickle, Dani Hofmann, Jane Henderson, Paul Nicholson, Rebecca Nicholson, Richard Madgwick, Yiota Manti, Steve Mills, Jacqui Mulville, Dave Watkinson, Tim Young.
