African Archaeology Research Day 2013

April 29, 2013

We are delighted to invite you to the 10th African Archaeology Research Day (AARD). This is being hosted by the Sainsbury Institute for Art on Friday 1st November and Saturday 2nd November, 2013. This year the conference will include one or two invited keynote speakers, papers in a series of themed sessions, smaller discussion groups on the Saturday morning, and posters, which will be available for viewing over the duration of the conference.

This year’s organising committee is Anne Haour, Joanne Clarke, Sam Nixon, Nick Brooks and Nadia Khalaf. Also see the Centre for African Art and Archaeology for more information on African research at UEA.

The theme of the conference is ‘Africa’s material culture past and present’. Our central theme will be, of course, African archaeology, but we are keen to attract input from related disciplines such as art history, heritage management, history and museology.

For further details see the AARD website.
