‘The Future of Our Past’

Submissions for NASC 2019 have now closed. We thank all who submitted their work, and we look forward to seeing the successful presenters at NASC.

Our preliminary running schedule is now available at the ‘Program’ tab above (please note that this is subject to change).

Registration for NASC will close on September 24!

NASC aims to provide archaeology students with a supportive environment to discuss their research and ideas. 

The 2019 National Archaeology Student Conference will be held by Flinders University 1-4 October in the heart of Adelaide. NASC 2019 promises to be thought-provoking and exciting as we delve into our theme: ‘The Future of our Past’ - innovation, inclusion and interdisciplinary research in archaeology.

Presentations, posters and visual art submissions will be presented by Australian and international undergraduate, honours and postgraduate archaeology and classics students. Registration is now open via Sticky Tickets.

This year we are excited to welcome Richard Osgood (Digging for Britain, Operation Nightingale, CAW 2019 Archaeologist of the Year) as our keynote speaker, along with very special guest Mitchell Allen (Smithsonian Institute)!

With special guest speakers:

Associate Professor Amy Roberts

Dr Daryl Wesley

Dr Martin Polkinghorne

Dr Georgia Roberts (ANCATL)

Wallace Boone Law (AAA)

Stay tuned for more information about NASC 2019!
