The Institute will host the Archaeology and Economic Development conference (AED2012) on 21-22 September 2012.

For archaeologists and heritage professionals, the conference will provide insight into the state of the art, in both theory and practice, for pursuing economic development goals utilizing archaeological and heritage assets.

The speakers have been drawn from global institutions to provide the widest possible range of professional experience, cultural and political context, and economic challenges in order to stimulate what is expected to be a vibrant discussion among attendees and speakers.

Full information on the conference themes, programme and speakers is available on the AED2012 website

The conference is being organised under the auspices of the Institute's Archaeology and Development Research Network by Paul Burtenshaw and Peter Gould and was the winner of the IoA Conference Competition 2010/11.
