  • Memorialisation and Remembrance
  • Conflict Landscapes
  • Fortified Landscapes
  • Methodological Approaches to the Study of Conflict
  • Heritage Management of Sites of Conflict

The committee is particularly enthusiastic for submissions on the theme of Applied Science in Conflict Archaeology, which will serve as a theme for part of this year’s conference schedule. Please send an abstract of 250–300 words to PGCAConference@hud.ac.uk by 18th of August 2017. A1 and A0 poster presentations are also welcome.
