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. Besides our own conferences, EXARC often co-hosts conferences or sessions in many different countries.

September 2018 - EAA Session: What we are learning from Experimental Archaeology, Barcelona, Spain

Date

Session #199 at the European Association of Archaeologists’ (EAA) meeting,
14:00h – 18:00h, room UB407

Experimental archaeology is the process of forming and testing hypotheses by replicating an action, leading to statements on the construction, use or discard of an archaeological object or feature. A hands-on immersive comparison with the past is created. But archaeology is more than a simple answer to “who were the people who lived here in the past”.

IMTAL Europe
The conference “Archaeology for the People” addresses all those professionally interested people in public archaeology, (open-air) museums, living history and interpretation. While archaeologists discover ever more sites and gain insight in the past, the challenge is to convey these stories accurately to the public in an appealing way.
