The #EAC12 Conference was an “around the world in 80 experiments” taking place in March 2021. It started in Australia, turning towards Asia, Africa, Europe, North and South America as the time proceeds, and that for 4 days. #EAC12 had online lectures as well as presentations by local hotspots in different time zones (in total 167). With the lectures and hotspots, #EAC12 shows the diversity of experimental archaeology and the geographic spread.
Linda Hurcombe and Peter Inker gave the closing talk at EAC12 amazing conference. They did it in the same way as at the conference: Peter was online in the United States and Linda was online in the United Kingdom. The conversations between the two of them have been running throughout the live conference. They have both talked about the need to do things differently in a world where there is climate change to think about. The new format has been both a challenge and a chance for new opportunities.
"I think EXARC has really set a new idea of what you can do and it is not one that I've seen done in any other field, let alone in archaeology. I just commend them for having the vision to do it this way and to give us this set of experiences, with the help of so much organization and support behind the scenes."
