The Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology

Post-Medieval Archaeology Congress 2017

31 March — 2 April 2017

Booking now open! 

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 events in the city on Friday afternoon and evening, followed by parallel sessions of papers at our Congress partners, the University of Hull, all day Saturday and on Sunday morning. During Sunday afternoon we will offer plenary talks also open to the public on the theme of Roots and Routes, with a city tour as an alternative.

Social activities will also take place over the weekend, and there will be a guided trip on Monday 3rd April to historic sites in East Yorkshire; all these events will be optional and where appropriate there will be an additional cost.
