Inaugural Shanghai Archaeology Forum
The inaugural Shanghai Archaeology Forum (SAF) was held from the 23rd through 26th of August 2013 at the Art Theater of the China Art Museum Shanghai (formally Expo Shanghai China Pavilion) in Shanghai, China. SAF members and friends gathered together for the first time out of their passion for the past and their commitment to archaeology and the protection of cultural heritage for our common future. It was intended for them to learn from each other and to learn from the past, in order to better understand the present and be better prepared for the future. The presentations of the archaeological research shortlisted by the 2013 SAF Selection Program, the Keynote Lecture Series and the Public Archaeology Lectures were among many stimulating and rewarding activities at the inaugural event.
The inaugural Shanghai Archaeology Forum was made possible with the support of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and the Shanghai Municipal Government.
