How can archaeologists contribute to understandings of mortality past and present in the Digital Age? How do we both teach and research death via digital environments and engage increasingly diverse audiences with mortuary archaeology?

Join us for a distinctive public archaeology conference taking place as a digital event without need for registration on the evening of Wednesday 27th January 2021 and all-day on Thursday 28 January 2021. The event will be run by final-year Archaeology undergraduate students at the University of Chester and will take place on Microsoft Teams and via Twitter (links to be shared closer to the time – hashtag: #digideath.
