Join these social events and link up with people in Europe and Africa.

Come CHAT with us! PubCHATs are designed to be an informal way to meet other contemporary and historical archaeologists and to talk about life, research, and interests! There is no formal programme, so just show up with your favorite evening beverage or meal and be prepared to socialise. These PubCHATs are timed to be accessible for those located in Europe and Africa, but everybody is welcome! This is part of a series of three events being held in association with the Festival in different timezones (including the Americas and Asia/Oceania).

We will send out the Zoom link via the CHAT JiscMail (CONTEMP-HIST-ARCH@jiscmail.ac.uk) a few days before the event. You can sign up to join this mailing list HERE by clicking the ‘subscribe’ button.

Note: There is no official language for pubCHATs and while it is likely that many of those who come along speak English, we welcome speakers of all languages.
