Abstract

We invite you to visit the tropics this year to participate in the joint Australian Archaeological Association/Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology annual conference, 'Culture, Climate, Change: Archaeology in the Tropics'. This is just the third time our two associations have come together to share our annual conferences and we look forward to continuing our close collaboration into the future. The tropical zone is home to extraordinary diversity, reflected in a rich and diverse archaeological and natural heritage. In our own region, discoveries such as Homo floresiensis, sea-faring Lapita peoples on the south coast of Papua New Guinea and the tropics as a key zone controlling global climate have fundamentally reshaped our understandings of the long-term human histories of these vast land and seascapes. Your host James Cook University welcomes you to the tropics to engage in conversations about these issues and about many others which confront our disciplines. Our venue for 2014 is the Pullman Cairns International. We trust that delegates and other guests will enjoy their experiences in the North of Queensland.
