A joint conference of the Irish Post-Medieval Archaeology Group and the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology, on the archaeology of early modern towns.

The year 2013 sees the City of Derry-Londonderry marking its status as the UK City of Culture. As part of the celebrations, the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology and the Irish Post-Medieval Archaeology Group are hosting a joint conference at the Verbal Arts Centre within the historic walls of the City. The conference is intended to situate the 1613 granting of the City’s town charter within its broader historical context, while also considering the ways in which the early modern urban fabric continues to shape contemporary lives. The conference will feature a series of public workshops, a guided tour of the City walls, field trips to nearby archaeological sites, and an academic paper programme. We are currently seeking paper proposals on aspects of the evolution, character, and continuing legacy of sixteenth- through eighteenth-century urbanisation within and well beyond Ireland and Britain.
