The Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology

Post-Medieval Archaeology Congress 2019

22 March — 24 March 2019

University of Glasgow

The fourth annual Post-Medieval Archaeology Congress will be held at the University of Glasgow in March 2019. Glasgow plays host some of the most impressive post-medieval and later-historical architecture in the world, and has a long industrial history. The venue for the congress will be the University of Glasgow, founded in 1451 and one of Scotland’s four ancient universities. Research on post-medieval and historical archaeology from around the world has been showcased at previous Congresses, demonstrating the breadth of interest and knowledge in our field from researchers at all stages of their career, whether academics, students, commercial, or community archaeologists.

The annual Congress is open to all researchers to report current and recent research on any aspect of post-medieval/later-historical archaeology. There is no geographical focus and we welcome papers and posters from around the world. 

Conference paper and poster sessions will take place in the James Watt Building South, University of Glasgow, Glasgow G12 8QQ (home to the School of Engineering, marked A1 on this map).
