SAMS (Society of Archaeological Masters Students) at UCL is pleased to announce the IoA’s fourth annual conference for Masters Students, run by Masters Students, that will take place Friday 3rd June 2016 at the Institute of Archaeology in London. Please see the attached flyer for details.
The theme is "From the Field to the Museum: Modern Approaches to Cultural Heritage and Engagement", which gives everyone an opportunity to participate, regardless of your MA degree and specialisation. This is an opportunity to discuss your area of research, perhaps stemming from your dissertation.
Open to all Masters Students, as the aim of this conference is to give you a chance to present your work to a large audience as a graduate student. We also welcome submissions from recent IoA Masters graduates as well as Masters Students from other institutions. For external university applicants who wish to present, SAMS is prepared of offer travel expense reimbursement up to a £15 value per person.
If you wish to participate and give a 15-20 minute talk followed by questions, please submit an abstract (of no more than 250 words) accompanied by a proposed working title by Friday 11th April 2016 to the official SAMS's email address: email@example.com.

Long days at the IoA? Looking for a quick pick-me-up?
SAMS is proud to begin providing Master's students with free snacks and drinks, available in the "SAMS" basket in the Master's Room on the ground floor. Stop in with your own cup or thermos and help yourself to some tea or coffee to keep you going. There is also a jar for donations if you want to help support SAMS' efforts. Good luck out there and happy studying!
Additionally, SAMS will now also be providing washing up liquid to go along with our new scrub brush in the Common Room in the basement of the IoA. Students can now wash up their lunch wares or reuse clean utensils and mugs!
If you have any other suggestions or comments for SAMS, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
This Friday, February 12th, will be SAMS first movie night of the school year!
