POSTPONED - 11th Biennial Fields of Conflict Conference, 24th-27th September 2020

As a result of the current Covid-19 pandemic, which is likely to pose many challenges to all of us for the foreseeable future, we have taken the decision to postpone the 11th Biennial Fields of Conflict Conference. We hope to reschedule the event for September 2021 and will make a further announcement this autumn, when we have a better idea of how the situation is developing. In the meantime we hope you all stay safe and well! 

The last decades have seen a rapid growth of methods and case studies focused on studying the materiality of conflict. We hope to bring together students, professionals, practitioners and academics at different career stages to present papers and posters showcasing their research on the study of conflict in the past.

Conference themes will include but are not limited to:

  • Prehistoric conflict
  • The bioarchaeology of conflict
  •  Advances on methods and theoretical frameworks
  •  Women and conflict
  • Experimental approaches
  • Landscapes of conflict
  • Repression, imprisonment and resistance
  • Maritime conflict
  • Battlefield tourism and ’negative’ heritage
  • Public archaeology and outreach activities
  • Memorialisation and remembrance
  • Visualisation of conflict

Abstract submission closed in mid-January and we are currently reviewing all abstracts. The conference programme will be available in March.
