EXARC Conferences, Meetings and Workshops

The virtual world is very important for EXARC, but nothing beats meeting other members in person - people with similar professional interests and backgrounds. EXARC regularly organises conferences offering a platform from which to present yourself and your activities / research, but also a place for more informal exchanges of experience. Those conferences and meetings are open for both members and non members. Besides our own conferences, EXARC often co-hosts conferences or sessions in many different countries.

FinallyFriday

#FinallyFriday is there at last!

We are happy to present a monthly online session hosted by Matilda Siebrecht. She pairs archaeology and journalism with a healthy curiosity into the past, crafts, experiments and much more.

#FinallyFriday is all free of charge and open access for both EXARC members and non-members alike. We bring together two EXARC members with overlapping interests which they discuss from different perspectives. You can listen in, and ask questions or present your take on the subject. Following on the discussion, our specialists will go live in an interactive session with those who tuned in. After that, we go to the virtual pub!

See you then, a great way to start the weekend!
