One-day Conferences

The British Archaeological Association has occasionally organised one-day conferences on subjects of interest. These have included the joint conference in September 1993 with the Royal Archaeological Institute to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of the original Association in 1843. The theme of this conference was the contribution made by our Victorian predecessors to the study of the past and the transactions were published as The Study of the Past in the Victorian Age, Oxbow Monograph 73 (Oxbow Books, 1998) and a day in celebration of the work of Richard K. Morris, that was held at The Courtauld Institute on 20 February 2016.

The next one-day conference will be Afterlives: Reusing the Past, A Series of Short Papers to Celebrate the Life of Jill Franklin, and will be held at the Society of Antiquaries on Tuesday, 30 April, 2024. For a provisional programme, see here. Tickets at £15 are available here.  Tickets for students are free, but students must register beforehand by sending an email to
