Correspondence is central to our understanding of the past.  This workshop aims to investigate the value of correspondence in the history of archaeology and antiquarianism.  Papers are solicited from a wide range of perspectives, covering early modern and modern antiquarian or archaeological research.  Papers might address the practicalities of archived correspondence, or correspondence as a tool for recreating the past.


Key Questions

• (How) has the nature of correspondence changed?

• How does correspondence reflect the development of disciplinary identity?

• Can correspondence be problematic for understanding the past?

• How does correspondence reflect a wider archaeological network?


Organisers: Dr Amara Thornton and Dr Jen Baird
