Pushing the Boundaries – Issues in Southern African Archaeology

The Annual Symposium is designed to bring academics and Archaeological Society members together once a year for a full-day of exciting lectures. The theme this year is Pushing the Boundaries – Issues in Southern African Archaeology. Our aim this year is to bring together specialised speakers in the discipline of archaeology to debate current issues. There are several areas of archaeology where there are widely differing views and opinions about current practice. Recently our country’s archaeologists have debated departing from traditional views on subjects such as hominids; new ways of looking at the LSA; origins of herding; moving on from the ‘Iron Age’ as a series of ‘cultural boxes’; and interpreting rock art. The speakers this year will discuss how their work influences and impacts practice, theory and method locally and internationally. A question and answer session with all the invited speakers will be held at the end of the day.

WFTGA Iran update

Dear Friends and Colleagues of WFTGA Finally I have news to publish – and it is good news too! It cannot be any secret that the signing of the Vienna Treaty with Iran in January released once more critics of WFTGA General Assembly decision for our 2017 convention; the almost immediate renewal of more sanctions swept euphoric ideas to ground and lead to an almost paralytic standstill. Now, Executive Board can give you basics of our next convention in Iran:
