Iron Age Research Student Seminar 2010 - BAJR Host - 21st July 2009

The thirteenth annual IARSS meeting will be hosted by the Division of Archaeological Geographical and Environmental Sciences, University of Bradford on Thursday 3rd to Friday 4th June 2010.

The Iron Age Research Student Seminar (IARSS) is an informal conference for post-graduate students studying any aspect of Iron Age Archaeology in Britain, Europe or the wider world. It provides an opportunity for researchers to meet others studying this archaeological period, hear about the latest projects and discoveries, and discuss their own research.

The seminar will be held over two days on 3rd and 4th June 2010, with an optional field trip on the 5th June. Sessions will consist of 20 minute papers delivered by those well into their research projects, and 10 minute papers for first year researchers who wish to give an introduction to their projects. Discussion sessions, chaired by leading experts in Iron Age archaeology, will be held at the end of each day, providing an opportunity for the development of themes and ideas raised in the papers.

We are expecting 70-100 people from all over the UK and a number of students from European and American universities. The 2 day conference is aimed at students studying the Iron Age but we will include any current research into the Iron Age, including the commercial sector. If you or any of your colleagues would be interested in submitting a paper please contact Fiona Tucker at
