Society for Medieval Archaeology Student Colloquium 2013


The first call for papers is now open for the Society for Medieval Archaeology Student Colloquium, to be held at the University of Aberdeen, 7-8th November 2013. The event aims to provide a platform for postgraduates and early career professionals to present and discuss their current research.

Papers from across the medieval period (5th-16th centuries AD) and from all geographical areas are welcomed. However, to reflect Aberdeen’s focus on the archaeology of the North we are particularly interested in talks on medieval archaeology that focus on the Northern Europe, for example the northern Britain, the Baltic region, Scandinavia and the North Atlantic region, and the first day of the conference will be set aside for papers on this theme. Papers from subjects other than archaeology, but which have a broader medieval significance, will also be considered. Abstracts for posters are also encouraged.

Abstracts should be written concisely in English (no more than 150 words) and sent to by Friday 6th September. Please include 5-10 keywords with paper abstracts. Please note that papers will be 20 minutes in length with a 10 minute discussion for each session.

Presentations will be restricted to postgraduates and early career professionals but we

welcome posters from all medievalists.
NB: This conference will be held in English.
