BRAG 2013

Queen’s University are delighted to host the British Rock Art Group’s annual symposium for 2013. This is the first time the event has come to Ireland and, as ever, the conference is an opportunity for new and established researchers to present their work to a wide network. We hope that by bringing together a wealth of themes and approaches, we can explore new directions in rock art studies and provoke new initiatives and programmes of inquiry. A optional fieldtrip will also take place on Sunday 21st April to Newgrange and Knowth. Contact for further details.

Date: Saturday 20th April
Location: School of GAP, Elmwood Building, Elmwood Avenue. Queen’s University, Belfast. Price: £5 which includes tea, coffee and a light lunch

This year’s proposed sessions are as follows:

  • New methodologies and landscape approaches
  • Rock art research in Atlantic Europe and beyond
  • World rock art and international rock art studies

Confirmed speakers include Liliana Janik, George Nash, Daniel Arsenault, Tertia Barnett, Didier Bouakaze-Khan and Aron Mazel. Programme is available here.

We are also delighted to confirm our guest closing speaker will be: Professor Muiris O’Sullivan (University College, Dublin), who will be giving a talk entitled ‘The Stone-Mad Millennium in Prehistoric Ireland’ – all welcome.

There will also be an optional fieldtrip to Newgrange and Knowth, led by Dr Robert Hensey (NUI Galway). The trip will cost £20, which includes transport and entrance fees. As places will be limited, please register your interest immediately.
