Theoretical Archaeology Group

Quick Reference



The first public TAG conference was held at Sheffield University in December 1979 following the success of two seminars held for students and staff in the universities of Sheffield and Southampton. TAG meetings aim to act as a forum in which the nature and development of archaeological theory can be discussed in a wide‐ranging way. A conference has been held annually in December since 1979, its venue moving between those universities in Britain with an interest in such matters.
