The annual residential meeting of the AEA - our 30th Anniversary meeting - will be held at the University of York, York, UK, 3rd-5th September 2009.
We are planning two full days of papers aligned to the following themes:
Thread 1: Environmental Archaeology, climatic change and sustainability: past and present
Thread 2: Environmental Archaeology and developer-funded research: constraints and opportunities
Thread 3: General session: research and advances in Environmental Archaeology
We welcome offers of papers (15-20 mins duration) and posters: please use the booking form below to offer a paper or poster and to make a booking for accommodation. The link to Abstracts will give guidance as to what we information we need.
We do not propose to produce a conference volume as such, but papers (subject to the usual refereeing processes) are always welcomed by the Editors of the AEA's journal Environmental Archaeology and we would urge contributors of papers to consider this route. (Environmental Archaeology is now indexed in several A&I services, including Scopus Elsevier. For classification in the arts and humanities grading system the ERIH (European Reference Index for the Humanities) listed Environmental Archaeology with an A grade.)
A Conference Dinner will be held on the evening of Friday 4th September and the Association's Annual General Meeting will also be held during the conference.
On Sunday 6th September we will be able to visit the York Archaeological Trust's long-term excavations at Hungate in the city (please remember to indicate whether you are interested on the booking form, and bear in mind that you will need an extra night's accommodation if you are staying till the Sunday). Otherwise, there is plenty to do and see as a ‘archaeo-tourist’ in York.
AEA Conference Fund
The AEA has £750 to disburse (in five £150 allocations) to members of the Association who need assistance in attending the meeting. Priority will be given to those with limited alternative sources of funding (particularly postgraduate students and those in the commercial field). For further details see notes and for an application form click here. (NB forms should NOT be sent to the conference organisers!)
