The Oxford Centre for Maritime Archaeology at the University of Oxford will host the 4th Postgraduate Conference in Conflict Archaeology. The three-day conference will bring together promising researchers in this emerging field of the study of human violence and its footprints in the archaeological record.
The archaeology of conflict has been steadily earning its space as a promising sub-discipline of archaeology over the last decade. As this field of study solidifies its legitimacy in academic research, it expands its breadth of knowledge to encompass the numerous facets that constitute the archaeology of conflict.
