The Prehistoric Society

Alex Gibson

Welcome to the website for the Prehistoric Society

Welcome to the Prehistoric Society, the foremost society for the promotion of study into our prehistoric past.  An exciting series of lectures, visits and conferences  can be found on the events pages of this site all of which are open to members and non-members. These events pages are frequently updated so please keep an eye on them.

We look forward to our 2015 Europa conference and AGM this year to be hosted by University College Dublin.  The theme of the conference will be the origins of monumentality and the recipient of the prize will be Prof Friederich Lüth from the German Archaeological Institute. The Friday session will be given to younger researchers whilst on the Saturday, lectures will be delivered by internationally known experts in their fields.

CUP have now completed their scans of back issues of PPS and PPSEA and these are all now available on-line, free to Members, on the Cambridge Journals Online website: www.journals.cambridge.org/prehistoric. The PPSEA volumes can be found on their own page: http://journals.cambridge.org/action/displayJournal?jid=PPE.
