TRACamp: An Experimental Archaeology Workshop – CFP Now Open

Posted by

It is our pleasure to announce the Call for Papers for TRACamp. This experimental archaeology workshop will be held at the Roman fort of Vindolanda (Northumberland) September 22-23, 2018. The workshop aims to support ongoing studies in Roman experimental archaeology and to promote the inclusion of experimental projects into the wider field of Roman studies. This event is sponsored by the Council for British Archaeology (Mick Aston Archaeology Fund) and the Vindolanda Trust.

This two-day workshop will include paper presentations (single session format), posters, demonstrations, and hands-on experiments. Current sessions include themes in experimental archaeology such as computer reconstructions, structural reproductions, and artefact reproductions for both academic and public education.  Alternative themes are also encouraged for the general session as well as for the posters and demonstrations. The first day of papers will be held in the Headley Centre at the site of Vindolanda while the posters will be displayed in the Vindolanda Museum. Demonstrations and hands-on experiments will take place on the second day on the grounds surrounding the museum and will be open to the public.

Please submit abstracts using the template provided to: by June 22nd, 2018.
