CBA Wales Conference 2018

The rescheduled archaeology in Wales conference is now open for booking. It will take place between 31 Aug – 2 Sep, although single day tickets are available. It will be held at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, Lampeter.

The event will showcase current innovative projects and fieldwork and provide opportunities for hands on workshops, professional development, networking, and guided visits to some of the most iconic and interesting sites in Wales. Hear and experience Wales’ archaeology from the Prehistoric to the Industrial, from coastal to gardens, and from poetry to place names, and participate in an exciting programme of social events.

Leading British archaeologists will be on hand running sessions, giving presentations and guiding visits. Professor Mike Parker-Pearson, author of Stonehenge: Making Sense of a Prehistoric Mystery will be exploring the latest evidence regarding the origin of the Stonehenge Bluestones. Plus you can visit the potential quarry site and decide for yourself! Professor Carenza Lewis will provide her reflections on archaeology in Wales as the keynote address at Saturday’s formal dinner and Professor David Austin will be  exploring the myths, landscape and future of Strata Florida Abbey.

The conference is suitable for all, whether professional, volunteer or anyone else interested in the archaeology of Wales. You don’t need to be a member of CBA Wales to attend, but members of this regional group will get a special discount.
