The European Association of Archaeologists (EAA) represents archaeologists and heritage professionals from across Europe. The Annual Meeting has become established as the premier archaeological conference in Europe and the 21st Annual Meeting will be hosted at the University of Glasgow in September 2015.

We look forward to welcoming c. 2,500 delegates to the EAA Glasgow 2015. It will be the first, biggest and best cultural heritage event of its kind ever to take place in Scotland and we have commemorated this by designing a special tartan entitled ‘Ancient Gathering’. The EAA Glasgow 2015 will be a marketplace for ideas and is an excellent opportunity to share Scotland’s rich, diverse and unique cultural heritage with an international audience. Scotland is also the perfect stage for the EAA’s Coming-of-Age celebrations!

Seven key themes define the framework for the EAA Glasgow 2015 to ensure delegates with a broad range of interests can participate in the meeting.
