Archaeological Research in Progress (ARP) is a one-day conference presenting new research ﬁndings and best practice in archaeology covering all periods from across Scotland and beyond.
It is organised in alternate years by Archaeology Scotland and the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.
In 2022, the conference will take place on Saturday, 28 May at Aberdeen University.
The event will be acquiring a hybrid nature where the conference will be held on campus following Scottish Government Covid-19 guidelines and permitting participants to assist online.
At the moment we are receiving papers for the conference. If you have exciting research findings that you would like to present at ARP 2022, we are inviting proposals for 20-minute papers that demonstrate the most up-to-date information and best practice.
Papers must be submitted by Sunday, 27 February 2022.
Our aim is to programme a breadth of chronological and geographical projects from across Scotland and beyond. So, even if you have nothing you wish to contribute yourself, we are also asking you to nominate research relating to Scotland that you would like to see included in ARP 2022! For this we will require a short description of the research and contact details for the researchers.
We will get back to you as soon as possible to let you know if you are on the programme (and ask for images for publicity if you are). The event will be recorded and available online free to view afterwards.
Travel expenses will be reimbursed and accommodation paid for where necessary for a single presenter per paper included in the programme.
We look forward to hearing about your research and your ideas for research from elsewhere to be included.
