Kent Archaeological Review extract

Conference for Young Archaeologists.
by Christopher Jones.

Young archaeologists from different parts of the country assembled at the Institute of Archaeology, Gordon Square, on the 6th and 7th of January, 1966 for their fourth annual Conference. Some 50 people attended, but only two Kent Groups were represented.

Accommodation was provided at Campbell Hall for those unable to travel each day: the conference fee was 11 shillings.

At least half the programme was allocated to discussions on archaeological topics and these proved instructive and popular. The remainder of the time was devoted to illustrated lectures on prehistoric, Roman and Medieval subjects being mostly work carried out by members in Britain and abroad.

It was decided to hold the next Conference at Cardiff and to return to London the following year (1967). The upper age limit remains at 32.
