There will be a prize for the best student poster. We are grateful to the Association for Environmental Archaeology for sponsoring this competition.

A preview of the conference programme

The full programme for the EAI conference is still being finalised, but here’s a short preview of what to expect.

There will be talks about how the techniques of environmental archaeology have contributed to our understanding and knowledge of the following topics: climate change in the past, Irish bog bodies, urban settlement in Ireland, agriculture, and the archaeology of Irish woodlands and wetlands.

We’re also delighted to announce that Gill Campbell (Head of Environmental Studies at Historic England) and Chris Caseldine (Professor of Quaternary Environmental Change at the University of Exeter) have agreed to participate  on the day, bringing their extensive experience from working in environmental archaeology in the UK.

Full details will be announced soon. In the meantime, you can register to attend the conference here.
