History of the Symposium

The Symposium on Archaeometry and Archaeological Prospection from 1969 until 1979

In 1969 the scope of the symposium was extended to other subjects apart from archaeological prospection. The name was accordingly changed to 'Symposium on Archaeometry and Archaeological Prospection'. With a larger program the symposium was expanded to a two-day meeting in 1970 and to a three to four day meeting during the following years. In 1976 the symposium was hosted by the University of Edinburgh leaving the RLAHA in Oxford as permanent hosting institution. In 1978 the offical numbering of the symposium was introduced by I. Scollar, the organiser of the Bonn meeting. Since his area of epertise was magnetic surveying, he started the sequence with the London meeting on 'Prospection in Archaeology by Geophysical Methods' in 1961.
