A few years ago we have decided to meet with a few archaeologists to discuss post-mediaeval archaeology. During this informal meeting, we were speaking about post-medieval archaeology and in detail about post-mediaeval pottery. Later that day we found out that rather than meeting it became a workshop. We realized that we lack something like this on a regular basis. The idea came out to organize a conference focused on the archaeology of the post-medieval era. Such a conference should be the platform to meet and discuss different approaches, opinions and ideas throughout the European regions.
