Landscape Narratives: creating stories from archaeological survey

Friday 18th and Saturday 19th September 2015

The Gateway Education and Arts Centre, Shrewsbury

Following the Landscape Survey Group's inaugural conference on Landscape Perspectives, this conference will explore the role of archaeological field survey and investigation in analysing and contextualising our understanding of place. It will consider how landscape recording contributes to the biographies of sites and their settings, drawing on traditional and innovative mapping techniques as well as documentary research, oral tradition and antiquarian investigations. The conference will combine a day of paper presentations with a field visit to Powys on the second day.

We are now inviting proposals for papers that address the theme of the conference. If you would like to contribute a 20 minute paper for the first day, please send a title and short abstract (250 words maximum) to Mark Bowden by Friday 19th June.
