Fieldwork 2021: Past to Present Archaeology

Students are welcome to join the Medieval and Bronze Age excavations at the site of Manglisi, Georgia (country not US), in summer 2021. Students will be able to gain more experience working on an archaeological site whilst enjoying the beautiful surroundings of the Caucasus Mountains.

Flights are not included but everything else is. The research is being
undertaken by Ilia State University in Georgia in collaboration with
Past to Present Archaeology. There are a number of projects that
students might want to get involved with, depending on their interests, so this is also a good networking for students wanting to pursue an archaeological career. The project will hopefully provide students with future research ideas and possible dissertation topics, should they wish to pursue these avenues. For further details please visit:

Anyone interested can either contact Rupert Birtwistle by email on projects@pasttopresent.org or alternatively contact Past to Present
Archaeology via their website.

Call for Papers: ARC 36.1 – Resilience and Archaeology

Call for Papers: ARC 36.1
Resilience and Archaeology: Human response to past hardship. 

The Archaeological Review from Cambridge is pleased to invite submissions for our next issue (36.1), exploring the concept of resilience and how it can contribute to a better understanding of the past, particularly as to the study of change and transformation. We understand resilience as a dynamic process within a given system that links a set of adaptive capacities to a trajectory of functioning and adaptation after a disturbance. It is also a neutral framework interdisciplinary framework useful to explore social, cultural, economic, and ecological changes at different magnitudes and at different systemic and spatial scales. 

Please see the attached Call for Papers for more details, and don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions or to register interest (arc.resilience@gmail.com) by July 10th 2020. We welcome contributions from researchers at any stage of their academic career and from all related disciplines. Papers of no more than 4000 words should be submitted by August 24th 2020 for publication in April 2021
