The Annual Student Archaeology conferences offer an unprecedented opportunity for undergraduate and postgraduate students of archaeology and related disciplines to share and discuss innovative research and views on the past through presentation of papers and posters at an accessible, fun and increasingly respected conference.

Since 2013, ASA conferences have been held at the Universities of York, Reading and Edinburgh. They have attracted undergraduates and postgraduates from not just across the UK but also many other countries around the world, bringing together excellent research and ideas by the next generation of archaeologists.

ASA conferences are also social occasions where students from different universities and areas of the discipline can meet one another and enjoy the tours, meal or other events of the conference. Additionally, delegates are offered the opportunity to network with each other and any organisations that hold stalls at the ASA conferences.

Cambridge announced as host of ASA4!
Wednesday 10th February 2016

Following a very successful 3rd ASA conference at the University of Edinburgh that was both academically stimulating and hugely enjoyable, students at other universities across the UK had the opportunity to apply to host ASA4 in September 2016. It was a difficult decision though the retiring 2014-15 National Committee selected the University of Cambridge's bid. Follow ASA on Facebook and Twitter for announcements about ASA4 as well as who has joined the National Committee for 2015-16.
