About the Conference:

In 2000 a small group of likeminded archaeologists specializing in the archaeology of conflict met in Glasgow, Scotland, to discuss their mutual interests and share their research. Since then, the conference has grown, meeting in Aland, Sweden (2002), Nashville, Tennessee, (2004), Leeds, England, (2006), Ghent, Belgium, (2008), Osnabruck and Kalkriese, Germany, (2011), and Budapest, Hungary (2012).

The Nashville, Tennessee, meeting was especially rewarding in that the United States National Park Service, American Battlefield Protection Program, held a joint preservation workshop along with the third Fields of Conflict Conference.

It is time conflict archaeologists and preservationists re-convene in the United States to pursue preservation and research together again. We welcome you to Columbia, South Carolina.
