As the field of maritime archaeology continues to mature into a respected sub-discipline, advances and developments are occurring at an ever-more-rapid pace. The Maritime Archaeology Graduate Symposium (MAGS) will allow the next generation of leaders in the field to gather in Oxford to share their research, engage with like-minded scholars, and foster interdisciplinary cooperation. From masters’ students to post-doctoral academics, we encourage all early career researchers of maritime archaeology and related sub-disciplines to attend, either as audience members or presenters of papers.
The first day of the symposium will feature talks on maritime archaeology of the eastern Mediterranean, as this is the region in which Honor Frost, a pioneer in the field, primarily worked. The second day will consist of talks on maritime archaeology from around the world.
This two-day symposium will take place in the centre of historic Oxford, at the Ioannou Centre for Classical and Byzantine Studies. Spaces are limited, but attendance is free and a light lunch and coffee and tea breaks are included for participants. In the evenings, there will be ample opportunities for attendees to exchange ideas and explore the medieval centre of Oxford.
