University of Bristol and SS Great Britain, Bristol

Call for Papers

SPMA is following its now annual Congresses in Sheffield (2016) and Hull (2017) with the Post-Medieval Archaeology Congress at the University of Bristol and SS Great Britain on Friday 23 – Sunday 25 March 2018.

Bristol has long formed part of global networks of maritime trade and industry. The city has operated as a regional and international trading port for more than 1000 years, developing trade with North America and the Caribbean from the 17th century and playing a major role in the transatlantic slave trade. Bristol’s place in global networks continues to shape the city’s identity into the 21st century.

This congress is open to all researchers at any stage of their career, whether academics, students, commercial or community archaeologists, to report recent research on any aspect of post-medieval/later historical archaeology. We encourage contributors to offer 15-minute papers or poster displays which will be grouped by the organisers into themed sessions. 

Please send paper and poster proposals (title and abstract of up to 150 words) to by 18 December 2017.

Further news about the conference, including registration, social events, and trips on Friday 23 and Monday 26 March, will be available on this page soon.
