TRAC 2020 (postponed 2022)

The 30th Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference

Split, Croatia (postponed: Spring 2022)

The conference will run alongside the Roman Archaeology Conference (RAC)



Due to the ongoing challenges and uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided that it remains impractical to hold a physical event in April 2021. As holding the event among the Roman remains in Split has always been at the heart of this conference, we have reluctantly decided to postpone TRAC in conjunction with RAC until spring 2022, in an attempt to realise the original concept and hold a physical conference in Split.

The exact dates will be confirmed in due course. We intend to keep the existing programme as far as possible, and to keep all bookings for the conference fee, excursions, and evening events in place.

We are happy to provide a formal confirmation that the event has been postponed to anyone who requires one.

If you are a speaker and no longer able to give your paper, please let the session organizer know and email us (

If you are no longer able to attend (as a session organiser, speaker or delegate) and would like a refund, please email Fiona (



We are pleased to announce that the 2020 Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference will run alongside the Roman Archaeology Conference (RAC) in the historic centre of Split, Croatia, taking place from Thursday 16th April to Saturday 18th April. Three excursions will be offered throughout the conference, see here for details.

The conference will take place in a number of venues across the historic centre of Split, including portions of Diocletian’s palace, the Milesi Palace, and the Municipal Museum of Split.

The DRAFT programme is now available: RAC/TRAC Programme

Registration is now open! Register here: Registration.

By registering for a place at the Conference, you are automatically agreeing to the following Code of Conduct.

Please note: This is a participative conference where more than half the delegates are speaking, so all delegates are expected to pay the conference fee. This helps keep the fees as low as possible and also maximises participation and engagement.
