24th Annual Meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists
'Reflecting futures'

24th Annual Meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists 2018

The The EAA Executive Board, the Municipality of Barcelona, and all the institutions representing Catalan archaeology in the Advisory Board are delighted to welcome delegates to the 24th Annual Meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists in Barcelona - 5 to 8 September 2018.

Barcelona has much to offer. It has wonderful, state-of-the art museums and art galleries, it boasts some stunning architecture and it also has many archaeological sites open to the public. The city is also famous for its lively intellectual and popular culture. 

The Annual Meeting venue is located in the centre of the city, at the Faculty of Geography and History of the University of Barcelona and the Centre de Cultura Contemporania de Barcelona (CCCB), cultural centre just opposite to the Faculty. Excellently situated at the heart of Barcelona, the area is witness to the extraordinary ability of this Mediterranean city to reinvent itself. Urban renewal and modernization sits comfortably side by side with the city's eclectic mix of medieval, 18thC, 19thC and Art Nouveau architecture. 

The Barcelona Meeting will celebrate EAA's participation in the European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH) with thought-provoking discussions and exchange of ideas on heritage, material culture, archaeological science, theory and social impact. As a way to encourage debates on archaeological museums and outreach to public, a specific theme will be dedicated to the EYCH. Also, the Annual Meeting in Barcelona will foster discussions that are linked to the sustainability of the city's cultural life, such as the role of heritage in urban renovation and the opportunities for the promotion of civic pride, identity and wider promotion linked to its Mediterranean location in the archaeological past. 

Join us in celebrating, cosmopolitan Barcelona for the 2018 EAA Annual Meeting.
