26 October 2018 – Archon day

Archon day

Rijksdienst voor Cultureel Erfgoed, Amersfoort

1 EC

On Friday the 26th of October 2018 the Annual ARCHON day will take place at the Rijksdienst voor Cultureel Erfgoed in Amersfoort. This year the ARCHON day has a new set-up.

We will start off with a lunch and the ARCHON poster competition, where RMA and PhD students compete for the best posters. ARCHON members will have the opportunity to present a poster in the big hall of the RCE. Participants of the ARCHON day can fill out an evaluation form to grade the posters. The two best posters can win an Archon Conference Subsidy. The results will be announced during the award ceremony and drinks! The deadline for submitting a poster is Wednesday the 17th of October. You can find the formats for the poster here and here.

The afternoon sessions will introduce a new component of the ARCHON day, three parallel  workshop sessions:

  1. Academic and non-academic archaeology
  2. Community archaeology
  3. Publication strategies

More details about the parallel workshop sessions will follow soon.

The workshops are followed by a panel discussion about societal impact and best practices followed by a debate (possible with statements).
The day ends with an award ceremony and drinks in which the results of the poster presentation competition will be announced.

We look forward to seeing you in Amersfoort in October!
