The 4th International Landscape Archaeology Conference will be hosted by the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History. It will be held at Uppsala University, the oldest univesrity in Scandinavia – founded in 1477 – on 23-25 of August, 2016.
An excursion to Gamla Uppsala will be arranged during the conference. Post-conference excursions options will include northern Uppland to visit sites associated with the iron industry by Walloon immigrants especially during the 17th century, and the island of Gotland well known for its prominence during the Viking Age and the architectural splendours of Visby – the main centre of the Hanseatic League during the 12th to 14th century. There will also be opportunities to visit various prehistoric sites in Sweden.
Further details concerning the major themes of the conference – which will include landscape historical ecologies, heritage landscape services and landscapes of climate change – will be posted in September along with a First Call for Papers and links to registration pages and accommodation information.
Questions regarding abstract submission should be sent to the secretariat at email@example.com
For questions regarding other matters (e.g. exhibition, venues, and general information) please contact Professor Paul Lane at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you in Uppsala in August 2016.
