The 6th annual Islamic Archaeology Day, co-organised by SOAS and UCL, will be held at the UCL Institute of Archaeology on Saturday 1 February. The deadline for early-bird registration is Friday 10 January.

Islamic Archaeology Day

The Islamic Archaeology Day workshop will provide a snapshot of some of the latest and most exciting research being conducted in Islamic archaeology. Twelve papers will examine a wide array of topics from the origins of the earliest mosques to urbanism, food taboos and pigment production across a huge geographic expanse stretching out from the Levant, Iraq and the Arabian Gulf to the furthest corners of the Islamic world such as al-Andalus and Turkmenistan.


There is an early-bird registration fee of £12 (£7 for students – limited numbers) for those who register before 10 January 2020. Registration after this date is £18 (£10 for students) so participants are encouraged to register as soon as possible. Registration will cover a sandwich lunch, refreshments and a wine reception.

Organisers: Corisande Fenwick (UCL), Rahil Alipour (UCL), Hugh Kennedy (SOAS), Scott Redford (SOAS), Tim Williams (UCL)
