Welcome….

To the home page for the Eurasian Archaeology Conferences.  We are currently planning the 4th conference to be held October 11-13, 2012 on the campus of Cornell University.  Check back here for news and information.

The Eurasian Archaeology Conferences (EAC), initiated in 2002 at the University of Chicago, bring together a global community of scholars to address key issues in the archaeology of the Eurasian continent.  Graduate student planned and led, the EACs offer a glimpse not only of Eurasia’s past but also the future of research in the region.  Papers delivered at the EAC offer glimpses of both new data and visionary ideas that will shape thinking on the region’s past for years.  Publications drawn from the EACs explore critical archaeological themes on a continental scale, with papers grounded in regions from Eastern Europe, to the Caucasus, to Central Asia, to Siberia and the Far East.

The Eurasian Archaeology Conferences are sponsored by departments and units across Cornell University.  Thanks to the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Anthropology, the Department of Near Eastern Studies, the Department of Classics, and the Department of History.  Use the links at the right to visit their sites and learn about their other activities.
