BU to host 35th meeting of the Theoretical Archaeology Group!

BU will host the 35th meeting of the Theoretical Archaeology Group (TAG) on the 16-18 December 2013. TAG is a lively international meeting that promotes debate and discussion of issues in theoretical archaeology.

BU last held TAG back in 1997, a meeting that is still remembered for its strong international profile and also some rather disruptive snow-showers! This year we anticipate 300-400 delegates, many of whom will be undergraduate and postgraduate students. Indeed, TAG

is rather unique in the sense it is run by students (overseen by faculty) for students. It presents a valuable opportunity to fuse academic research with student learning, exploring new and topical ideas and showcasing original work.

More details will be posted in due course by event-leader Professor Timothy Darvill.
