African Archaeology Research Day



History of AARD

The first African Archaeology Research Day on ‘Research Africa’s Past, New Contributions from British Archaeologists’ was held in Oxford in 2002 organised by Peter Mitchell, Anne Haour and John Hobart. The meetings are informal and are aimed at encouraging both undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as established academics, to present their research. They include plenty of time for informal discussion.
