CFP: 17th Annual Cambridge Heritage Research Group Seminar

The Heritage of Displacement:
Forced Migration in the Mediterranean through History

Saturday, 14 May, 2016
McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, University of Cambridge

Throughout history mass movements of  people have created heritage, at the time and retrospectively. Sites left behind are reused or fall into ruin, objects are taken on journeys, cultural practices are introduced to new environments, and,  sometimes, return journeys are attempted. This movement generates countless stories and leaves a ‘trail of crumbs’ of both tangible and intangible heritage.

Please send abstracts of no more than 300 words by 29 February 2016 to Margaret Comer (mac201@cam.ac.uk).
