“Archaeology in Conflict” an International Conference April 6-8, 2010

Dear colleagues,

The international conference on “Archaeology in Conflict” will take place from the 6th to the 10th of April 2010 in the Vienna International Center/UNO-City in Vienna, Austria.

The conference is powered by the World Archaeological Congress (WAC) and the Association of National Committees of the Blue Shield (ANCBS) in cooperation with learned societies, academic research institutions and non-governmental organizations from all over the world. It is organized by Friedrich T. Schipper, University of Vienna, and Magnus T. Bernhardsson, University of Iceland & Williams College and hosted by Michael F. Pfeifer on behalf of the United Nations Youth and Student Association – Austria.

As the president of ANCBS I will personally deliver a talk about the Blue-Shield-network and also host a special session on cultural heritage protection.

I want to use the opportunity of this conference at a very distinct venue to schedule an ANCBS board meeting on the 6th of April at the UNO-City in Vienna.

Best regards,

Karl von Habsburg

President ANCBS
