History of Experimental Archaeology Conference: Call for papers

May 30, 2012

We would like to announce an exciting new conference on the history of experimental archaeology. The conference will be held 12-14 April 2013 at Sagnlandet Lejre (Denmark), an archaeological open-air museum well known for its historical links to the development of experimental archaeology in Europe. Sponsors include EXARC (the International Council of Museums Affiliated Organisation representing archaeological open-air museums and experimental archaeology), Sagnlandet Lejre (the Danish open-air park with reconstructions of ancient living environments) and HARN (Histories of Archaeology Research Network).

The aim of this conference will be to uncover and understand the important role that replicative experiments have played in the development of archaeology, and to also establish a historical context for the issues confronting experimental archaeology today. International speakers are highly encouraged to submit a paper in the hopes of establishing a cross-cultural dialogue concerning the history of experimental archaeology.

Please visit the website for more information:

To submit a proposal for a paper, please send your contact information, paper title and abstract (no longer than 500 words) to one of the Conference Organisers before 31 August 2012:
