SPMA student bursary for EAA 2013, Pilsen
Financial assistance from the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology for a student to give a paper at the following conference session:

*The Archaeology and Heritage of the Prisoner of War experience* *: *researching and managing a fragile resource.

Session at the European Association of Archaeologists19th Annual Meeting, Pilsen, Czech Republic, 4 - 8 September 2013

Call for Papers closes 15th March

Co-organised by Harold Mytum ( and Marek Jasinski

There has been a recent rise in interest in the archaeology of recent military conflict. One aspect of increasing importance is that of prisoner of war camps, and also the many military and other infrastructural features of the landscape constructed by prisoners of war. Museums also house important collections of artefacts made and used by prisoners whilst imprisoned. This session builds on the success and interest of Prisoner of War Archaeology (19th and 20th centuries) at the 15th EAA 2009 at Riva del Garda. Now we consider the role of recent fieldwork locating and interpreting the physical evidence, memory work linked to sites or artefacts, public interpretation of prisoner of war sites and artefacts, and the management issues related to this important though often fragile resource. Papers cover archaeology of the period from the 18th century to recent times.

This session is sponsored by the Society for Post-medieval Archaeology so that a student can be financially assisted to give a paper at the session.

Anyone interested in offering a paper should in the first instance contact Harold Mytum well before the Call for Papers closes on 15th March.
