Annual Conferences

TRAC is first and foremost the Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference, and our flagship initiative is an annual conference that has been held every year since 1991. Beginning in 2016, TRAC began to organise and sponsor additional events including seminars and small workshops; for more information on the full range of TRAC events, see our Events page.

The first Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference was held in 1991 at Newcastle upon Tyne to widen the range of perspectives offered, and voices heard, in Roman Archaeology. The original conference was organised by Dr Eleanor Scott, who continues to contribute to TRAC as a member of the TRAC Advisory Panel.
