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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline date for abstract submissions has been extended to April 15th 2015.
