On the 12th and 13th of October 2018, the University of Cologne is hosting a two-day symposium on digital teaching in archaeology, called “Communicating the Past in the Digital Age“, short #ComPDA. Besides being one of the organisers (as I work at the university also), I will be giving a talk about the challenges of archaeological reconstruction.

I have talked a lot about the topic of archaeological reconstruction, either about reconstructions of the past (my PhD) or of the present (my work), but I never really compared them both. In addition, I also want to talk about the future developments in this field and what we can learn from the mistakes made in the past.

My talk will be on the first day, right before the first half of the symposium ends. You can see the whole programm here. There are international scientists of all fields related to teaching archaeology digitally and it looks like an awsome conference. If you want to attend as a guest, feel free to do so. There is no registration requiered and the symposium is open for all. If you do, make sure to say hi!
