The Annual Allchin Symposium on South Asian Archaeology was established to commemorate the work of Raymond and Bridget Allchin, and the outstanding contribution they made to the development of South Asian Studies in the United Kingdom.
This year, the Symposium will be held in Cambridge and the keynote lecture entitled ‘The White Heat of Technology: Pre-Industrial Iron and Steel-Makers of the Indian Subcontinent’ will be presented by Dr Gillian Juleff, University of Exeter, on the evening of Friday 30 November at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research (CB2 3DZ). The symposium will take place on Saturday 1 December 2018 at the Ancient India and Iran Trust (CB2 8BG).
Submission of proposals for presentations closed on Friday 31 August 2018. It is anticipated that presentations will be no more than 20 minutes in length. There is only space for 10 presentations, and proposals are currently being reviewed and selected by the organising committee.
The cost of registration will be £15. Limited funds may be available for graduate students intending to speak at the symposium in order to help meet the costs of their travel and accommodation.
It will be possible to register on the day, but if you wish to register beforehand, please email Munizha Ahmad-Cooke, Administraor, Ancient India and Iran Trust, or telephone 01223 356841 (Mon‐Fri 9.30‐13.00).
