Welcome to the

7th Reconstructive & Experimental

Archaeology Conference

Colonial Williamsburg

Williamsburg, VA, November 16 - 19, 2017

2017 Call for Papers


Reconstructive and experimental archaeologists strive to expand our archaeological understanding of the past by attempting to recreate material culture, technology, or life-ways by using the same materials, techniques, and strategies believed to have been employed in the past through structured experimentation. REARC promotes and stimulates interest in reconstructive and experimental archaeology; serving as a bridging organization between Open Air Museums, academics, primitive technologists, related groups, and individuals involved in the field. By supporting and facilitating an active and open exchange of information between related groups; REARC serves as a bond among those interested in this and related subjects. We encourage publication through the EXARC Journal to aid in the conservation and development of related data; and to encourage high standards, development and support for the scientific application of reconstructive and experimental archaeological research.

REARC is a 501c3 not for profit educational organization listed under Society of  Experimental Archeology and Primitive Technology (SEAPT).

About our logo:
