DIG2017 conference - call for papers

Back in February I announced that Newcastle would be hosting the 7th Developing International Geoarchaeology conference in 2017. Plans are slowly coming along and I am happy to say the conference website is now up and running, which you can view here. There is all sorts of information about travel and whatnot, and we will be updating it regularly, so keep checking. We have also issued the first call for papers, almost a year in advance so plenty of time to make your arrangements! Information on conference accommodation will be available soon and will be bookable at the time of registration, which we hope to have ready by the end of September this year. Student and early career researchers may be interested to know that we are going to have prizes awarded for the best paper and poster submissions, kindly sponsored by the School of History, Classics and Archaeology. We are also making arrangements with Geoarchaeology journal for a potential special issue related to the conference, subject to the usual review procedures. And added to that some amazing field trips to some of the best landscapes in Britain, both natural and archaeological, and it promises to be a very exciting conference indeed!

Field trip to Roman Vindolanda!
