SEAA Society for East Asian Archaeology



SEAA's 7th Worldwide Conference will take place in Boston in June 2016 and will be hosted jointly by Harvard University and Boston University. The tentative dates are Wednesday June 8 - Sunday June 12, 2016.

Post-conference tours are being planned to archaeological sites in New England, as well as to museums with Asian collections in the northeast of the U.S.
As in years past, we expect a solid turnout, so please help us promote the conference to archaeologists of East and Southeast Asia.
