Welcome to DIG!

Developing International Geoarchaeology (DIG) is the title of a series of very successful international conferences.   The goal of DIG is to bring together a wide variety of international researchers, practitioners and students in this diverse and interdisciplinary field in order to facilitate discussion, stimulate research, and promote international scholarship in geoarchaeology.

This website is designed to serve as an archive for information on past conferences and as a central entry-point which will facilitate access to information on upcoming conferences.   It is also a mechanism for contacting people involved with DIG, including the international steering committee, listed below.

 

 

Save the dates: DIG 2015 will be held at Alghero University in Sardinia, June 9th to 12th 2015, immediately after the Micromorphology Workshop at Cagliari University, Sardinia, June 5th to 8th.  Abstract submissions are now being accepted at dig2015submissions@gmail.com.  See our "Upcoming Conferences" page for more details.

 

 

 

 The very successful DIG 2013 was held at the University of Basel, Switzerland, from September 5th to 6th 2013, following on from the annual workshop on Archaeological Soil Micromorphology on September 2nd to 4th 2013. Go to http://geoarch.ipna.unibas.ch/WASM&DIG/home.html for details, including photos of the workshop, field trip, conference, and social events.  Congratulations to the organizers, Philippe Rentzel, David Brönnimann, Kristin Ismail-Meyer, Christine Pümpin and Philipp Wiemann! 

 

 

Feel free to contact the steering committee members if you want to get involved, or host a conference.

 

 

The international steering committee is a small, informal, group of researchers who have been involved with one or more DIG conferences to date, and who are willing to help promote the continuation of the DIG idea in the future.
