While this Spring Issue of The European
Archaeologist contains another two session reports
from the 20th Annual Meeting in Istanbul, 2014, we are also already looking
forward to the 21st Annual Meeting. From 2-5 September 2015, archaeologists and
heritage managers from
Europe and the world will meet in Glasgow to join what again will be a major
conference. The conference organizers are astounded to announce that there is
the incredible number of 1976 submissions of papers or posters. This is
exceptional and we would like to thank everyone involved for their contributions
and diligence in promoting the Call for Papers. There may be about 180 sessions,
and all of you who proposed a paper or poster presentation will be informed
within the next few days. The full academic programme will be published on 31
May 2015 (see
We would also like to remind all delegates that
September is a very busy month for the city of
Glasgow. Please ensure you book your accommodation soon to avoid availability

Personally, I am also looking forward to the Glasgow
meeting - and looking back at five years of editing and publishing The
European Archaeologist, the newsletter for EAA members by EAA members.
Starting with TEA issue No. 33 in May 2010, I've now been responsible for twelve
issues - including the current Spring Issue No. 44 - supported by Lidka Zuk as
assistant and Jennifer Sharman as language editor - sincere thanks are given to
both of them, as well as to the numerous contributors! Everyone has helped make
lively forum for debate and exchange of information. Now I think it is time to
pass the baton on and to hand over responsibility to a new team.
And I am very happy to say that we were able to
engage a well-versed and prolific team to continue the work and, I’m sure, leave
their mark. The new TEA editors, starting with the Summer Issue 2015, No. 45,
are Katharina Rebay-Salisbury and Roderick Salisbury.
You can contact Katharina and Roderick and submit
your reports, announcements and debate papers as usual via
