This year at the conference we held an Archaeology Fair, where we brought together, in one bustling marketplace, a varied group of people whose businesses will be of interest to our subscribers and delegates to the conference. Dedicated booksellers, archaeology tour specialists, and companies working within the technical field of archaeology were all there. We hope you enjoyed what they had to offer.
