Post-Medieval Archaeology Congress 2018

23 March 2018, 2.00 PM - 25 March 2018, 3.00 PM

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.

The Call for Papers is now closed, and the provisional paper sessions timetable is available here. The provisional list of posters is available here, and there is room for a couple more - further poster proposals should be emailed to
