  • 2021/22 series of the Skyscape Archaeology Keynote Lectures

    2021-10-14

    The Journal of Skyscape Archaeology, in collaboration with the Sophia Centre (University of Wales Trinity Saint David), the Sophia Centre Press and Bournemouth University, are proud to announce the 2021/22 series of the Skyscape Archaeology Keynote Lectures.

    Continuing from the success of last year, this second series draws on a number of different and unique voices to inform future trajectories, research questions and methods for skyscape archaeology. We aim for these keynotes to generate constructive dialogue around these topics, therefore each Zoom session will consist of a single 45 minute lecture followed by discussion.
