The Department of Classical & Archaeological Studies is hosting the 21st Iron Age Research Student Symposium (IARSS) from Wednesday 30 May to Saturday 2 June 2018, with papers, posters and presentations taking place at the University of Kent, followed by guided tour of the ancient city of Canterbury.

IARSS is a research student focused conference, providing an opportunity for students to share their work, network and collaborate with others. More details about the conference will be released shortly, including schedules for submitting sessions and papers. This event is open for contributions from postgraduate research students and new researchers, however, MA students are also welcome to submit and participate in the conference. Although IARSS is promoted as an Iron Age conference, contributions from colleagues studying or working within related periods, such as the Late Bronze Age and Roman Iron Age are also welcome. Although it has a focus on British history, we welcome contributions from those colleagues examining the Iron Age elsewhere in the world, including, but not limited to, Ireland, the European continent and the Near East.

For those colleagues who wish to present a paper at IARSS 2018, please submit an abstract of no more than 300 words outlining the background and themes of your research. Please also include five key words, separately, that relate to your research, and email your abstract to

The registration form will be available soon.

The deadline for submitting abstracts is by 4 May 2018.
