Summary
What if academic conferences were reimagined? This book provides a sample of the papers given at festivalCHAT, a conference qua festival convened in 2020 by the Contemporary and Historical Archaeology in Theory group. Held at the height of the COVID pandemic and hosted entirely online, festivalCHAT featured a global line up of participants who embraced the unprecedented situation by probing the limits of archaeological thinking and experimenting with new ways to present and produce archaeological knowledge. The 14 papers presented here consider the archaeology of COVID, graffiti, the home, waysides, chain mail, and urban staircases. The coordinators of festivalCHAT frame these contributions by offering archaeological insights into how they organised the event.
