I’ve been working on the plans for the day conference with Bob Johnston through the week. We have the date and venue for Assembling Archaeology.
We also now have the first two guest speakers arranged.
Helen Wickstead of Kingston University who set up the Art+Archaeology group talking about placing recent literature on art/archaeology within the context of wider debates in sci-art.
Antonia Thomas of the Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology will discuss her recent art projects based at excavations on the islands.
The conference will be very visual as befits the subject. We have banks of screens to showcase material from participants’ projects.
