Hosted by the Institute for Public Understanding of the Past in partnership with The Department of Archaeology, University of York, this half-day conference is devoted to the relationship between the material past and the public realm. The conference highlights not only some of the depictions of archaeology and archaeologists in broadcast media, but also explores the ways in which archaeology can be a truly participatory, grass-roots, activity through involving community groups with excavation projects.
1:30pm–5:30pm, The Philip Rahtz Lecture Theatre (K/133), The King’s Manor, University of York
Followed by a Drinks Reception
Confirmed speakers include Michael Wood (TV Presenter & Writer), Suzie Thomas (CBA), Cath Neal (University of York), Peter Connelly and Jon Kenny (both York Archaeological Trust).
