In addition, BABAO delegates will be able to contribute two abstracts to the “Being Human Festival” that takes place in the city. Each delegate will be able to propose an activity for the following events:

Saturday 4pm – 5pm: Public Exhibition

An exhibition-style event where the public can come in and look at your posters, some of your materials, or take part in small experiments. This will take place at the conference venue and will be followed by a public lecture by Dr Alice Roberts (5pm-6pm).

Sunday 2pm – 5pm: Meet the Anthropologist in the World Museum

Family science event in the World Museum Liverpool. You will be allocated a table/display area in a museum space and talk to the public about your work. If you work on a Roman site you may choose to be in the Roman Gallery; if your research involves fish consumption in the past you may prefer to be in the aquarium.

We look forward to seeing you in Liverpool!
