Modern Materials: the archaeology of things from the early modern, modern and contemporary world
Friday 16-Sunday 18 October 2009.
KEBLE COLLEGE, OXFORD UNIVERSITY
How does the study of material things contribute to our understanding of the early modern, modern and contemporary world? What is the distinctive contribution of archaeology in these studies?
The 7th annual meeting of the CHAT conference group focuses on the archaeological study of ‘Modern Materials’ – from ‘small things forgotten’ to large and complex technological artefacts; and from discrete, single objects to large, disparate assemblages.
