Eventbrite - Early Medieval Archaeology Student Symposium

This year’s conference includes two full days of papers and posters from 19-20 April 2018. Registration also includes a visit to the digital facilities at Glasgow School of Art’s School of Simulation and Visualisation followed by a wine/whisky reception at Govan Old Parish Church (home to the famous Govan Stones) on Thursday 19 April 2018. Registration costs £25.

Our conference dinner will consist of a 2-course meal and traditional ceilidh at Sloan’s, Glasgow’s oldest bar and restaurant, on Friday 20 April 2018. Places are limited, so reserving a space in advance is advised.

Our field trip to Kilmartin Glen will be led by Dr. Ewan Campbell on Saturday 21 April 2018 and features a visit to Dunadd, the ancient capital of Dal Riata. The field trip will depart from Glasgow at 9am and return at 7pm.

For those who require accommodation for EMASS in Glasgow, there are quite a few options available to you. Unfortunately, the SYHA Hostel is nearly fully booked for the dates of the conference, but the Alba Hostel (£15 per night) currently has space, and there are plenty of AirBnBs available in the West End. If your budget can stretch a bit further, some of the more affordable hotels near the conference venue include the Kelvin Hotel (£45-50 per night), Ambassador Hotel (£50-55 per night), and Lorne Hotel (£59-72 per night). Cheaper options may be available in the City Centre; the Glasgow subway is quite easy to use and the University of Glasgow is accessible from the Hillhead Subway station. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about the location of the accommodation you are considering.

More details will be provided at the conference draws closer.
