Registration to the Nordic Theoretical Archaeology Group Conference: Archaeology/Heritage

On 6-9 March 2024 Turku, Finland

We welcome you to join us at the Nordic TAG Conference in Turku. This year’s conference, themed Archaeology/Heritage, examines the tanglements of archaeological knowledge and heritage in contemporary society. Over 60 papers discuss archaeology’s connection to politics, how identity and non-human animals and plants are handled in archaeology, how modern politics affect the archaeological material and what’s the use of creativity in research. There are two workshops, dealing with archaeological education and expertise and trans-digital experiences in the cultural heritage institutions. Our keynote speaker is Prof. Visa Immonen from the University of Bergen. The conference is in-person.

Registration deadline has been extended until 16 February. Please notice you need to register with separate forms to the conference, dinner and excursion. Registration is non-refundable!

The conference will be held in Turku City center and University of Turku campus. To see the details of the conference premises, information about accessibility and hotel offer codes, go to Venue page > Venue page. To see the programme of the conference, go to Programme page > Programme page
