The Connected Past: Archaeological Challenges and Complexity, Imperial College London, September 8–9, 2014
The CFP for the next event in The Connected Past series is now open. This meeting is entitled The Connected Past: archaeological challenges and complexity - it is a one and a half day multi-disciplinary meeting to explore how concepts and techniques from network- and complexity science can be used to study archaeological data. These challenges include the use of material data as proxy evidence for past human behaviour, questions about long-term processes of social change, and the fragmentary nature of archaeological data. We aim to bring together physical scientists and archaeologists in order to highlight the challenges posed by archaeological data and research questions, and explore collaborative ways of tackling them using perspectives drawn from network and complexity science.
