 Scottish Student Archaeology Society Conference

This year SSASC2018 was run by Glasgow University Archaeology Society, based in the Archaeology Department of the University Of Glasgow.

Next year the conference will be organised by the Edinburgh University Archaeology Society, based in the Department of History, Classics and Archaeology of the University of Edinburgh.

Please contact us at: scottishstudentarchaeology@gmail.com if you’d like to present your research at a seminar or in poster form for SSASC2019 when the call for papers goes live.

Fieldwork Hub

We have also set up a fieldwork hub, attached to this site where groups can have their fieldwork opportunities advertised for free and students can find a wide range of fieldwork  as well as training courses and more. This will be going live in Semester 1 of 2018-19.
