Simple Timetable for #TAGDeva

Registration is now officially closed for #TAGDeva, but you can contact us on with any late registration enquiries.

In the meantime, here is an easy-guide to the TAG Deva conference, incorporating 33 sessions and activities, as well as a busy social calendar with the Antiquity Lecture on Monday evening in the Molloy Building, and the TAG 40th Birthday Party in Tuesday evening following the Antiquity Quiz at the Chester Students Union.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Session Updates

We have now had most session details in, although we are contacting session organisers for some final tweaks and details! Watch this space.

In addition, sadly, the following sessions will no longer be taking place at TAG Deva.

  • Connected Archaeology: Thinking the Discipline in the 21st Century
  • Is Culture-History Alive and Kicking?
  • Landscape Archaeology, Deep Time and (Fieldwork in) the Anthropocene
  • Post–Conflict Archaeology Ethics and Values
  • Vitrified Vikings?

Currently, it is anticipated that we have an exciting range of 33 academic events and sessions.

We hope to have finalised the timetable by the end of October!

TAG Deva fever begins!

Dr Caroline Pudney and Professor Howard Williams are leading the organisation of the 40th Annual Theoretical Archaeology Group conference at the University of Chester from 17th-19th December 2018.

We are supported by a range of students and staff in the Department of History and Archaeology, where we teach undergraduate degrees in Archaeology, both single honours and combined with a range of subjects.

We also teach a range of Masters programmes:

The Department has a burgeoning Archaeology postgraduate research community pursuing MPhils and PhDs.

The History and Archaeology department’s research focuses on prehistoric, early historic and contemporary archaeology in Britain and NW Europe, including expertise in landscape archaeology, carved stone monuments, mortuary archaeology and material culture.

The website and logo are set up and we have a Twitter account and Facebook page speedily fostering followers and spouting arch-theory!

Please follow us and consider attending the greatest archaeological gathering to ever come to Chester!
