…to the Roman Archaeology Conference website

RAC is the premier international conference devoted to Roman archaeology. It is organised by the Roman Society every two years, in collaboration with a host venue, and attracts a broad international audience. The first conference was held in Reading in 1995.

The Society aims to expand the reach of the conference by holding it alternately in Britain and on the continent.  In 2012 it went to Frankfurt, and in 2016 we were in Rome, as guests of Sapienza University of Rome and the British School at Rome.

In 2020 we will be in Split as guests of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts. The Call for Sessions and Call for Papers have now closed and the DRAFT Programme is available here: RAC TRAC Timetable

Conference proceedings are not published, but many of the sessions appear as monographs in the Journal of Roman Archaeology Supplementary Series. Go to the JRA website at http://journalofromanarch.com/


The Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference (which is held annually) normally collaborates with the Society to hold a combined RAC/TRAC every second year. Go to the TRAC website at http://trac.org.uk/ to find details of TRAC in Split!
