Benchmarking Interdisciplinarity
in Archaeological Science

New methods, new theories, new data

About Benchmarking Interdisciplinarity in Archaeological Science

Applications from the natural science are enjoying strong and increasing currency in archaeological research – some even talk of a ‘science revolution’. But critical voices can also be heard.

This conference aims to bring together scholars to discuss interdisciplinary problem-generation and problem-solving in archaeological research. We invite papers, posters and online lightning talks reporting on interdisciplinary archaeological scientific projects as well as reflections on interdisciplinarity in archaeology per se.

We ask: Can we benchmark interdisciplinarity in archaeological science?
