We run a range of Conferences, including the Archaeology in Wiltshire Conference and Wiltshire Industrial Archaeology Conference, as well as a number of one-off events.

 

 

This popular Conference has been running for a number of years and showcases the latest news about Wiltshire's Archaeology. The 2020 Conference was to be held in March, but had to be postponed as a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic.

The Conference is now being run online - on Wednesday and Thursday evenings over three weeks from 11-26 November. Over 150 people are attending the conference - their booking is being brought forward to the online event or are being offered a full refund.

Delivering the conference online means that it can also be opened up to a wider audience, and tickets are now available to the online sessions!
