African Archaeology Research Day 2017

The 2017 African Archaeology Research Day (AARD) meeting, which will be hosted on Saturday 25 November at the Department of Archaeology, University of York.

The African Archaeology Research Day has been an annual event in the UK since 2002 and the first meeting held at the University of Oxford. The meetings are informal and are aimed at encouraging both undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as established academics, to present their research. They include plenty of time for informal discussion. Since 2002, the conference has been led by various academics in the field, at different venues across the country. Last year’s event at the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies, University of Exeter, was extremely successful at showcasing the range of research being undertaken on Africa’s past.

Stephanie Wyne-Jones, a member of the organising committee, will present a paper on the Rising from the Depths project at the meeting.
