Next EAA Conference

Send an e-mail to TEA Editor



This is the first issue of TEA's new quarterly schedule, the first Autumn Issue. And it is the first one after the Istanbul conference. The 20th EAA Annual Meeting in Istanbul has been the largest ever, with more than 2,100 participants, 150 sessions, and over 2,000 papers and posters. So it comes as no surprise that this issue contains many submissions concerning the sessions, social events and the Annual Business Meeting. To resurvey the programme, please visit

At the same time EAA is already looking into a bright future and is delighted to invite you to the next EAA conference in Glasgow, 2-5 September 2015. It is time to start preparing for your visit, so please check the conference web site at and follow the conference news at

The Glasgow organizers are not only organizing another memorable EAA meeting, they also created a special EAA Glasgow meeting tartan (s. EAA Matters) - and those of us who came to Istanbul already saw the Scottish colleagues in their particular EAA Glasgow kilts - what a sight!

The EAA Matters section also contains a letter from our new Secretary and our new Treasurer, currently the two managing officers of the EAA, explaining the plans for the coming months, so please have a look.

The Annual Business Meeting (ABM) is the plenary meeting of the EAA, taking place each year during the Annual Meeting on Friday. It is the place where strategic decisions for the future are presented, discussed, and decided; it is the place where all EAA members can raise their voice and participate in decision making. At the ABM in Istanbul several points of concern were raised and discussed - so I’d like to use the opportunity to encourage you to join future Annual Business Meetings too and to participate in deciding on the future of your association!

What was announced in the last issue already became reality with this issue: TEA launches a new section with reports From our Correspondents. For the Autumn Issue correspondents from five different regions collected, processed and arranged information on projects, exhibitions, excavations, legislation, publications etc. This new section will be a permanent element of future TEA issues, and if you, dear member, would like to see your announcement to be published as part of it, please contact either the correspondents or the TEA editor - or become a correspondent yourself!
