Engaging with the dead
Exploring changing human beliefs about death, mortality and the human body
The ‘Invisible Dead’ Project Conference Friday 6th-Sunday 8th June 2014
This event will be hosted by the Department of Archaeology, and attendance will be free of charge. We will be pleased to welcome archaeologists, anthropologists and others with an interest in death and human remains throughout prehistory and into contemporary society. A full provisional programme and registration form is available below.
In addition to the academic sessions (Saturday 7th-Sunday 8th June), there will be two public lectures on the evenings of Friday 6th and Saturday 7th June, with a wine reception following the Friday lecture:

The second form is for anyone wishing to attend the public lectures. There is no deadline for completion and it is not necessary to provide full contact details, but it would be helpful if this could be returned to give us an idea of the numbers interested.
