The Institute of Archaeology Annual Conference 2016 on 'Comparative Water Technologies and Management: Pathways to Social Complexity and Environmental Change' will take place at UCL on 15 & 16 April.
Water remains a vital issue in human society. The goal of this conference is to examine, across a variety of case studies, where new developments in social complexity can be traced in parallel or in near time with technical developments in water technologies.
By bringing together scholars from different disciplines, this conference will explore how the use of water, managing skills, and strategies for long-term sustainability in the past and present can contribute to understanding water problems across time and what that teaches us about today’s water issues.
