UKAS 2013 Conference Themes

The primary aim of this conference is to promote collaboration and dialogue between archaeological scientists. This group includes those active in environmental archaeological research and this conference will highlight this synergy by hosting a joint conference. To facilitate full involvement one day will focus on archaeological science in environmental archaeology and individual day rates will be available to allow a broad spectrum of participants to attend.

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.

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