IACA 30th Congress: August 13-17, 2024

The island of Nevis, part of the Federation of St. Kitts & Nevis, will play host to the International Association for Caribbean Archaeology's 30th bi-annual Congress. The Main venue for the Congress will be the Nevis Performing Arts Center (NePAC) in Charlestown. The IACA Congress brings together scholars, students, heritage managers, community members and the public from across the region, North America and Europe. The aim of the Congress will be both the scientific presentation of recent and ground-breaking research, as well as exploring and celebrating the archaeological heritage of the Caribbean generally, and of St. Kitts & Nevis in particular.
