31 March — 2 April 2017
The Society is building on the success of the 50th Anniversary Congress in Sheffield with a similar event in Hull as it celebrates being UK City of Culture. Our conference forms part of the Roots and Routes season, a theme highly relevant to post-medieval and historical archaeology. Hull, on the east coast of England, has a long tradition of networks with Europe and is an ideal venue for this international gathering of post-medievalists to share their interests.
There will be a walking tour of Hull on Friday afternoon and a drinks reception at Holy Trinity Church in the evening, followed by parallel sessions of papers at our Congress partners, the University of Hull, all day Saturday and on Sunday until mid afternoon.
The Congress Social will take place at the Yorkshire Brewing Company inthe Old Fruit Market Arts Quarter near Hull's waterfront on Saturday evening, and there will be a guided trip on Monday 3rd April to historic sites in East Yorkshire.
