Landscape Archaeology Conference 2016

Date: April 25, 2016

This August, travel to Uppsala, Sweden, for the 4th International Landscape Archaeology Conference. The event is hosted by the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History at Uppsala University. It will join experts in the social and natural sciences to discuss new developments in landscape archaeology, landscape research and historical ecology. The organisers write:

The conference aspires to cross conventional divides between nature and culture, mind and matter, and to bring together perspectives on landscapes past and present from the humanities and social and environmental sciences.

Session and panel topics for this multi-day conference include landscape historical ecology and climate change, landscapes and water and Mediterranean landscape ecology. The organisers have also planned several post-conference excursions, including a trip to view some of Sweden’s Bronze Age rock art.

The conference runs from August 23 to 25. The deadline for early-bird registration is June 15.
