2019 CHAT Conference (Contemporary and Historical Archaeology in Theory) hosted by Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA)

Hosted by MOLA, this year’s CHAT conference ‘CHATmethod’ will venture for the first time beyond archaeological theory to directly address the basics of what we do and how we do it. Contributions will provoke explorations of the practical ways in which we engage with the materiality of the contemporary and historical past. We will look at the ways in which we create and use our data, the tools that we use to communicate, and the processes by which we manage, assign significance and prioritise the work that we do.

 Spread across three days and three locations - MOLA’s Hoxton HQ Mortimer Wheeler House, London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE and Museum of London Docklands - the conference will feature a wide range of workshops, papers, tours and social events.

 Registration is £69 for waged delegates and £45 for unwaged and student delegates. This includes admission to all conference activities, workshops and events, as well as refreshments and lunch on Saturday 2 November. Workshop places are limited and must be reserved in advance - attendees will be notified when booking opens.

 The provisional timetable for the event can be downloaded from the MOLA website.

 Register on Eventbrite. Registration deadline is 27th October.
