CALL. 04.05.2018: Building bridges between Iberian and British Archaeology - Durham (England)
In the post-Brexit horizon, it is important to reinforce the links between British and Iberian Archaeology to secure the future vitality of an already fruitful joint trajectory.This workshop on archaeological research in the Iberian Peninsula intends to bring together researchers working in the UK involved in this region. The main goals for the event are to create and consolidate collaborations between different research teams and academics within the UK; to promote new joint projects; to provide archaeologists based in the UK with more opportunities to secure funding; and to strengthen the relationships between the Spanish, Portuguese and UK archaeological traditions
