The European Association of Archaeologists (EAA) is the largest professional association of archaeologists in Europe. It is also a CfAS Partner, and many CfAS Associates are members. The Association’s annual meeting will take place in Belfast, Northern Ireland, August 30 – September 3, and CfAS is sponsoring several events and presentations during the meeting:

  1. CfAS Reception. Friday evening, September 1, 7:00PM, at the Queens College Belfast Student Union Bar. Drinks and finger food will be available. This is an opportunity for current members to socialize and for your interested colleagues to learn more about CfAS and our mission. We will see you there and hope you will bring your friends!
  2. Session 184: MATERIAL WEALTH? NEW APPROACHES TO THE ARCHAEOLOGY OF SOCIAL INEQUALITY AND COMPLEXITY, organized by Dan Lawrence and Scott Ortman. Saturday, September 2, 8:30AM to 4PM. This session seeks to deepen understanding of relationships between inequality, scale, living standards, and institutions. Presenters include many members of CfAS’ GINI Project.

In addition, CfAS Associates will be giving many presentations on their work. Below is a list of presentations submitted by Associates in response to a recent solicitation. We hope many of you will check them out!
