British Association of Near Eastern Archaeology

Conference 2016

Croeso i BANEA 2016! Welcome to BANEA 2016!

The Schools of Archaeology History, and Anthropology and Classics are pleased to be hosting BANEA 2016 at Lampeter (University of Wales Trinity Saint David) from January 6th-January 8th 2016.

Our theme for the 2016 conference is Land, Sea and Sky in the Near East, from the earliest human occupation to the twenty-first century. We welcome contributions from a wide range of disciplines and interests, which variously explore land-, sea- and sky-scapes in the region, drawing on the myriad ways in which this region has been shaped, experienced, contested and entangled in people's lives, their social interactions and their cosmologies.

We will be running a series of parallel panels and workshops. Sessions will be a 1.5 hours long; each paper should be 20 minutes (with 10 minutes for discussion)- workshops & panels might run over two or more sessions depending on popularity and demand. There will also be an extended lunch break and poster session with a prize for the best poster in show! Please visit the calls for panels, papers and posters to submit your contributions.

We look forward to seeing you all in West Wales.
