This year's theme 'Whose Past?

The Conference will take place on Saturday April 28th 2012, in Lecture room D110, at the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology, Dawson
Building, Durham University Science Site. More information about the conference and a registration form are available to download. The final registration deadline is Friday 20th April 2012.
