The final program for the Illinois Archaeological Survey Conference of presentations on Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018, is available online.
Paper and poster presentations, our Annual Business Meeting, and Awards ceremony, convene at the Hilton Garden Inn Conference Center, 1501 S. Neill St., Champaign. We meet in the combined, main ballrooms at the front of the Conference Center. Presentations include current research and specialized topics in prehistoric and historical archaeology.
As the Illinois Archaeology Awareness initiative observes: “People have lived in Illinois for over 10,000 years, but only a portion of that history is known from historic documents. Celebrate some of the significant archaeological discoveries and projects that have aided in reconstructing and preserving the history of Illinois since it became a state in 1818.” Paper presentations are 15 minutes in length. Poster presentations will be displayed throughout the day. Beverages and snacks will be provided by the Conference Center throughout the day. Free parking.
