Friday 31st August to Tuesday 4th September 2018
This year’s AIA Annual Conference will now be held in Nottingham from 31st August to 4th September, starting on the Friday with a Seminar on ‘Revised Research Frameworks in Industrial Archaeology’, then the conference from Friday evening to Sunday lunchtime, and afterwards with coach visits from Sunday afternoon to Tuesday or Wednesday (which will include colliery sites, railway viaducts, steam engines, canals and bell founding).
The AGM on Sunday will be followed by the Rolt Lecture by Geoffrey Stell.
What was previously just a weekend event has developed into a full conference, to be held on the Nottingham University campus and organised by Marilyn Palmer and David Ingham.
More details can be seen on the Conference page and in the February edition of IA News. Make a note of the dates now!
The Association has withdrawn its involvement in the Caithness conference of 22nd to 27th June 2018 organised by Mark Watson, though that will still happen, albeit with a different sponsor.
