There will be concurrent sessions and plenty of space for posters. Our meeting will be hosted by the Department of Archaeology in the School of Geosciences.

The conference will take place on the historic campus of the University of Aberdeen (, one of the ancient universities of Britain in one of the northernmost cities of the British Isles. Don’t worry, it is connected by air and train and road to the UK and Europe. We will have field trips!  This includes the Aberdeenshire archaeology mid-conference trip. After conference options will include the Asian collections in Scotland’s major museums, archaeology of the Orkney Islands, and more.  Details forthcoming in September. Are you also planning a trip to the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA) meetings in Belgrade? That is 3-6 September 2025, so the SEAA will fit nicely right before.

We are looking forward to seeing all of you in Aberdeen!
