The 40th Theoretical Archaeology Group Conference
17th-19th December 2018
hosted by the
Department of History and Archaeology, University of Chester
The 40th TAG Conference will be take place in the historic city of Chester. In the Roman period, this legionary fortress was known as Deva: home of the Legio XX Valeria Victrix.
Recent TAG conferences have had a tight and focused theme. This year, there is no set theme. TAG Deva invites and encourages a range of theoretical topics, ideas, and debates, accepting the breadth and diversity of current archaeological theory. However, TAG Deva still aims to encapsulate the distinctive prehistory and history of Chester and its region. So sessions on subjects relating to frontiers in terms of time and space, land and sea, will be especially welcome in the context of Chester as an historic border city between England and Wales.
