TRAC 2016

The 26th Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference

In March 2016, for the first time, the Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference (TRAC) will be held in the glorious city of Rome, alongside the Roman Society’s Roman Archaeology Conference (RAC). TRAC is an unincorporated voluntary association that has developed from and around the annual Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference series held since 1991. The first TRAC conference was held to widen the range of perspectives offered, and voices heard, in Roman archaeology. This was a major success, and TRAC has made a major contribution to research in Roman archaeology over the past 25 years. Following on from the initial conferences, TRAC continues to organize an annual conference and to produce a publication of selected Proceedings within 12 months. Individual conferences are primarily organized by a Local Organizing Committee with the support of the TRAC Standing Committee and a number of sponsoring organizations. Since the mid-1990s, TRAC has been held – in alternate years – alongside the Roman Archaeology Conference (RAC) organized by the Archaeology Committee of the Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies(aka “the Roman Society”).
