…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.

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/

Next: RAC 2018


Details of TRAC 2017 in Durham and RAC & TRAC 2018 will be available in due course.
