World Archaeological Congress 2016
MOLA archaeologists James Dixon and Claire Cogar are heading to Kyoto, Japan, to present at the World Archaeological Congress 2016. They are presenting a series of papers that showcase initial findings and best practice resulting from the Archaeology, Placemaking and Art in Japan and the UK project. Funded by the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, the project examines attitudes and approaches, in the UK and Japan, to art and archaeology collaborations.
James Dixon is presenting two papers: Sustainability and politically-engaged archaeology and Site-specificity in an international context.
Claire Cogar is presenting: Rethinking Art and Archaeology: new approaches to presenting historical and archaeological identity and Archaeology and commercial development: creating opportunities to sustain the archaeological value and identity of urban sites.
